Hello nonnette Dr. Edward E. Mason devised the Roux-en-y operation in the 1960s. Later, he went on to develop an alternative procedure known as the VBG. "Roux-en-Y gastric bypass First gastric restrictive operation developed many years ago by Dr. Edward Mason. " http://www.newlifesurgery.org/overview.html "gastric bypass surgery (aka roux-en-y) [...] The perfect middle-ground seemed to be another hybrid procedure combining restriction and malabsorption called the gastric bypass, developed by Dr. Edward Mason all the way back in 1966. " http://www.gastric-bypass-treatment.com/gastric-bypass.aspx "Dr. Edward Mason at the University of Iowa developed a modification known as vertical banded gastroplasy (VBG) and published the first results in 1982." http://www.gastric-bypass-treatment.com/vertical-banded-gastroplasty.aspx I hope this helps, but please let me know if you need any clarification.
