It used to be that if you are overweight person, if you are morbidly will be since if you said, “Well, I'm going to have an operation they used to be a taboo, oh you took at easy route” it’s not an easy route so that’s one the social taboo. The second misconception is that it’s a big deal surgery there's so much cutting, sewing and that am I really going to come out okay on the other side. And there's a lot of publicity at one point unfortunately that is subsided now but there is a lot of publicity that may got to so many people die or have this and that and it is not they should be right for so to the point that let's get information, let's go find out who does it best, and then go proceed, don’t let that stop you from getting health. The third misconception right now is that you know would so much of marketing advertising, does you word groups in. What is minimally invasive? Well, minimally invasive is whatever we can do to the laparoscope though the tiny little cuts that’s called the minimally invasive surgery, that’s not only let then it’s also bypass. Most of our surgeon with these days are minimally invasive. The third misconception is the left bandage is reversible. Well, first thing is why you would like it to be reverse. You reverse its hundred percent that you're going to back to what you we’re so you don’t need a diverse. But if you do there are things in the human body that happen and it has to be done. At that point both procedures are reversible, both procedure are reversible at the cause of open in the operation. I'm going to need another operation to remove the left band first someone has, I'm going to need another operation and again laparoscopically to reverse the bypass that you have. And I think those are the major misconception.
