Meet Our Patients

We are so proud of our patients’ success post-surgery. There are patients who start running marathons and others who decide to start a family. Some patients find new joy in shopping for clothes or in playing with their kids and pets. Other patients tell us how incredible it is to go off of medications they have been taking for months because their comorbidities have decreased or even disappeared.

Share your weight loss story!

We are always inspired when patients come back and show us how bariatric weight loss surgery has changed your lives. Please share your story with us!

If you’re looking for inspiration, you will find it here!
