The MGB-OAGB International Club®

  • Roger C. Luciani


We relate a brief history of the MGB-OAGB from its origins to the general acceptance of a 20-year-old bariatric operation despite controversies, and the founding of a friendly scientific club to connect surgeons, share data, and publish techniques.
