Research Description on Front side panel page (next to group photo).
Obesity surgery is the most effective treatment for morbid obesity. Remarkably, most type-II diabetic patients who undergo obesity surgery experience complete resolution of their diabetes. The intriguing aspect of the remission of diabetes is that it occurs often immediately following surgery, prior to any substantial weight loss. Our research aims to determine the role of the small intestine and bile as contributors to the improved glucose metabolism following obesity surgery. The approach is novel in that two specialized surgical procedures that highlight the role of the lower intestine will be used. Our findings have the potential to reveal novel treatments for patients with type-II diabetes and potentially improved surgical treatment of obesity and metabolic disorders.
