Johns Hopkins Hospital is working a new approach to invasive weight loss surgery.
 
Dr. Cliff Weiss and his team have pioneered a minimally invasive weight loss surgery. It's aimed at blocking the stomach's production of the hunger hormone ghrelin.
 
Dr. Weiss joined ABC2's In Focus to discuss the new procedure. See his full interview above.
