MiniMizer Ring comes to Latin America

It was a great pleasure to come to Chile and perform the first Banded Gastric Bypass procedures done with the Minimizer Gastric Ring in Latin America with Dr Juan Eduardo Contreras Paraguez and his great OR team. Together with Dr Luc Lemmens these surgeries went great and the patients are back on their weight loss journey.
