Dr. Blackburn Honored by Department of Surgery
George Blackburn, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for the Study of Nutrition Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the first to perform gastric bypass surgery in New England, was recently recognized by his colleagues in the Department of Surgery at BIDMC.
At a celebration on November 4, 2014, the department annouced that the bariatric surgical service at BIDMC would now be known as the Blackburn Service.
Members of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and International Society for the Perioperative Care of the Obese Patient (ISPCOP) also attended the celebration.
The event is featured in the December 2014 issue of the Bariatric Times, along with a host of congratulatory messages from Dr. Blackburn's colleagues.
