About the author
Brian Quebbemann, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.M.B.S., was born in Alaska and decided to become a surgeon at the age of nine. He became interested in metabolic surgery in 1990, after he watched a gastric bypass using the open, traditional surgical technique of the time. He gained experience in bariatric surgery and minimally invasive surgery at the University of Chicago and began performing bariatric surgery in 1997. Two years later, he established a comprehensive Weight Management and Metabolic Wellness Clinic in Newport Beach, California. Dr. Quebbemann performed the first laparoscopic gastric bypasses in Orange County and was an investigator in the clinical trial for the Lap-Band System in 2001. He presented the first clinical series of outpatient gastric sleeve procedures in 2009 and performed the first single incision gastric sleeve using the SPIDER® surgical system in 2010. He was the surgical consultant for the Reshape Gastric Balloon prior to the FDA trial for that device, and his bariatric surgical program was the first center in the western hemisphere to perform the Reshape balloon procedure. Dr. Quebbemann is a fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, a member of the Obesity Society, a diplomat of the American Board of Surgery, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a master surgeon in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. He has written four books on weight loss, including World's Greatest Weight Loss, DietaryRebuild®, Permanent Surgical Weight Loss, and High Impact Weight Loss™. Throughout his career he has focused on improving the safety and success of weight control surgery and has invented surgical techniques, including the S.L.I.M.M.S. Procedures. Dr. Quebbemann was a major in the Army Reserve at the time of the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, and his daughter Brianna was born two weeks later. He loves spending as much time as possible with his beautiful daughter, who was born with severe epilepsy. He is also an avid bicyclist, runner, fly fisherman, and skier.
