Have you heard of The Lancet?

The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed medical journal. It is among the world’s oldest, most prestigious and best known general medical journals. The Lancet sets extremely high standards and they only select the best research papers for their quality of work and the progression they bring. 

We are pleased to share with you that not one but two of our Consultants have had a paper published in The Lancet. Consultant General and Bariatric Surgeons, Mr Omar Khan, FRCS and Mr Marcus Reddy, FRCS. 

Their paper was looking at the Incidence of type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery. You can read the full paper here.

Congratulations to both Mr Khan and Mr Reddy for their work and research resulting in this paper being published within The Lancet.
