Renowned Experts to Share Early Insights Into Why Bariatric Surgery Improves Type 2 Diabetes for Many Patients
Date:6/24/2011

SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For several years, researchers have known that bariatric surgery can significantly reduce or even eliminate symptoms of type 2 diabetes and other metabolic diseases/disorders in many patients.(1,2,3,4) What has been unclear is why.

Through the Metabolic Applied Research Strategy (MARS), Ethicon Endo-Surgery Inc. (EES), a global leader in surgical innovations, and its academic research partners are beginning to understand why this happens, and why the most basic earlier assumptions about how bariatric surgery works are wrong.

Today, at a special media briefing in San Diego in advance of the 71st Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association, EES and the following leading experts will share early insights from MARS and discuss potential implications for type 2 diabetes treatment:

  • Harold Lebovitz, M.D., Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology at The State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn
  • Philip R. Schauer, M.D., Professor of Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Director of Advanced Laparoscopic & Bariatric Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic

"In my practice, I routinely see patients who have remission of their type 2 diabetes within days or hours of gastric bypass, but we don't know why this occurs," said Dr. Schauer, who is speaking at the briefing. "Understanding how surgery has this effect has the potential to unlock new mechanisms of treating type 2 diabetes and, potentially, how to replicate the effect with less invasive procedures or even without surgery."

Clinical studies have demonstrated that some types of bariatric surgery can improve or resolve diabetes independen
