Roux-en-Y Bariatric Surgery for Weight Loss - Medical Animation
This 3D medical animation demonstrates the different surgical techniques commonly used in bariatric surgery (weight reduction surgery). Bariatric surgery is performed if weight loss efforts through lifestyle changes and medications have been unsuccessful and your body mass index, or BMI, is above 40 or above 35 and you have life-threatening condition, such as heart disease of diabetes. There are two types of bariatric surgeries; restrictive and malabsorptive. Gastric bypass or Roux-en-Y is both a restrictive and malabsortive procedure, while banding techniques are restrictive procedures and biopacreatic diversion procedure is a malabsorptive procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

"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."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."
