The Veterinary Bioscience Institute is thrilled to announce that Dr. Baran will now be teaching his successful surgical techniques, including Roux-en-Y-Gastric Bypass, vertical gastrectomy with duodenal switch, vertical gastrectomy, and adjustable gastric band at the Wake Forest University. This technique, since it is complicated and involved, will only be taught at small, private workshops at this point.
“The applications for this research model are innumerable, and there will be countless humans that benefit from the dispersal this technique and the research insights gained from its use,” states Dr. Baran.
“Dr. Baran is a meticulous surgeon with a reputation for excellence,” states Dr. Marcel Perret-Gentil, DVM, MS, University Veterinarian and Director for the Laboratory Animal Resources Center at the University of Texas at San Antonio. “I have personally observed Dr. Baran perform these difficult surgeries with incredible talent, but even if I hadn’t, if he has decided that his model is good enough to teach to other institutions, then I know it is a wonderful model."
The Veterinary Bioscience Institute is located at the Piedmont Triad Research Park in Winston Salem, NC. VBI is committed to the reduction, refinement and replacement of animal models in the laboratory animal field.
