There’s a new series on HBO that is a collaboration between the Institute of Medicine, the CDC and the National Institute of Health (NIH) that begins airing tomorrow night. This is a huge undertaking that took over three years to bring to the screen.
As many of you know – Obesity, diabetes and bariatric surgery are some of the topics that have been covered fairly extensively here at Cartagena Surgery. In fact – it’s the heart of Cartagena Surgery – since the very first surgeon interview I ever performed back in 2010 was Dr. Francisco Holguin Rueda, MD, FACS, the renown Colombia bariatric surgeon. (Shortly after that first leap – came Drs. Barbosa and Gutierrez – which is how we ended up here today.)
I’ve also been spending time, both last week and this week in the company of several bariatric surgeons here in Mexicali. MX and plan to go to several surgeries this week – so it seemed only appropriate to publish a few articles on the topic.
(I’m still transcribing notes from another one of my recent interviews – with Dr. Jose Durazo Madrid, MD, FACS).
I’d also like to encourage readers to take a look at HBO’s new mini-series (four episodes over Monday and Tuesday).
