Mini Gastric-bypass Weight Loss Surgery
Help Deal with Deadly Epidemic of Obesity

30 Minute Surgery May Resolve Severe Obesity and Help Deal with Deadly Epidemic of Obesity Sweeping Nation

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the U.S. obesity epidemic puts millions at risk from obesity related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack stroke, cancer and more. According to the WHO an escalating epidemic of obesity is sweeping the U.S. and many other countries in the world. Further they state "if action is not taken now millions of people will develop diseases and other serious life threatening health disorders that will lead hundreds of thousands of deaths in America."

Many are now turning to surgery as a treatment for severe obesity. A variety of operations are being offered but the complications and problems of the various types of available surgery leave much to be desired.

The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) is a minimally invasive, short, simple, successful and inexpensive laparoscopic gastric bypass weight loss surgery. The operation usually takes an average of 30 min., hospitalization usually less than 24 hours. The Mini Gastric Bypass has been shown to be low risk, it has excellent long term weight loss, there is minimal pain and when necessary can be easily reversed or revised. People from all fifty states across America and around the world are choosing the MGB as the "Best Choice in Bariatric Surgery."

Dr. Rutledge, following a twenty year career as a professor of surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is the innovative surgeon behind the MGB. Dr. Rutledge is the most highly recommended weight loss surgeon on the independent, nationally recognized web site.

In a recent independent controlled prospective randomized study Dr. Rutledge's MGB was shown to outperform the standard "RNY gastric bypass." In a head to head comparison the MGB had shorter operative times, fewer complications and weight loss as good as or better than the standard "RNY gastric bypass." In addition an independent analysis of the outcomes of the MGB by three certified public accounting (CPA) firms confirm the MGB has excellent weight loss, patient satisfaction and resolution of obesity associated medical illness.

Dr. Rutledge has performed over 2,600 cases and surgeons across the U.S. and around the world are adopting the new MGB technique. Surgeons and hospitals are now offering the MGB in North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Arkansas, California as well as around the world in Mexico, Spain, Brazil and Taiwan. New hospitals are planning to offer the MGB in Louisiana, Texas, Nevada and New York. In Canada the Ontario Health Service is approving patients to come to the U.S. for the MGB. As Susan Bell the 2,000th MGB said "Imagine, my surgery took only 15 minutes, I had no pain, was up and out of bed walking two hours after surgery and was out of the hospital less than 24 hours later!"

Costs are always a major issue. According to a recent USA Today article weight loss surgery usually costs about $24,000. In contrast the total cost for the MGB is only $17,000.

Dr. Rutledge is now proctoring a new surgeon and creating a new hospital site for the MGB in Los Angeles California. For more information visit the web site or call 909-731-0051.
