"The Doctors" features Metabolic Surgery

On Thursday, September 26, NBC’s TV show “The Doctors” includes two segments on Obesity and Metabolic surgery. The show will feature a married couple that lost a total of 270 pounds – and now no longer have diabetes. “The Doctors” will include a satellite interview with former ASMBS President and Cleveland Clinic Bariatric and Metabolic Institute (BMI) Director Philip Schauer, MD.

ASMBS is proud to see mainstream media outlets providing education and information about the disease of obesity. Research has conclusively shown that metabolic surgery can treat and cure Type 2 Diabetes, and finding ways to share this information with the public is vital. We encourage featuring the real-world impact of our members’ hard work.

Check your local listings for your region’s air times and stations. This is a great opportunity to share information about obesity and metabolic surgery with friends and family members!
