The S.L.I.M.M.S.® Procedures are revolutionary new surgical options for people looking for successful alternatives to traditional bariatric surgery. Invented by Dr. Brian Quebbemann, the S.L.I.M.M.S.® Procedures have three main goals:
To achieve better long-term success than Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Bypass, alone, by combining the two procedures.
To offer a reversible procedure to people interested in weight loss surgery for lifestyle and cosmetic reasons.
To improve weight loss results for patients who have already had the gastric bypass.
