Treatments for Obesity: Medications and Bariatric Surgical Procedures - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Treatments for obesity. Medications and bariatric surgical procedures. You may be put on weight loss medication for obesity if your BMI is 30 or more, or if your BMI is 27 or more and you also have an obesity-related health problem such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Some weight loss medications prevent your body from taking in fat from the food you eat. Other weight loss medications work by making you feel less hungry. Your health care provider may advise a bariatric surgical procedure if your BMI is 40 or more or if your BMI is 35 or more and you also have obesity-related health problems. During a sleeve gastrectomy procedure, your surgeon will remove most of your stomach. This leaves a smaller sleeve-like tube, about the size of a banana, called a gastric sleeve. The smaller gastric sleeve holds less food and makes you feel full more quickly. During an adjustable gastric band procedure, your surgeon will place a band around the top of your stomach. This makes a smaller pouch to hold food. As a result, you will feel full when eating smaller portions of food. In another surgical procedure called a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, your surgeon will close off the top of your stomach with staples. This will create a small pouch. Then a section of your small intestine will be attached to the small stomach pouch. This new connection bypasses most of your stomach, as well as the part of your small intestine where most of the nutrients from the food you eat are absorbed. As a result, you will eat less food and your body won't absorb as much of it. After a bariatric procedure, it's important to follow the dietary guidelines from your health care provider and to stay physically active. If you have any questions about medications or surgical procedures for obesity, talk to your health care provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
