New Study: Weight loss surgery can reverse diabetes

April 03, 2012

Dr. Brandon Roy, a weight loss surgeon with Wake Specialty Physicians’ Bariatric Program, and Lucy Merritt, a patient of Dr. Roy, talk with Maggie Alexander of NBC about the role that bariatric surgery can play in reversing diabetes. A pair of studies released last week found that weight-loss surgery worked better than traditional therapies for type 2 diabetes and could actually stop the disease in its tracks.
