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.

Weight lost: 140 pounds
About three years ago I weighed over 325 pounds and suffered from uncontrollable sleep apnea. I also had high blood pressure and borderline diabetes. After the doctors told me that I could no longer live at altitude and should move back to sea level I decided to make a complete life change.
After starting with the gastric LapBand, I changed my entire nutrition and fitness lifestyle and today have lost over 140 pounds! I no longer suffer from any medical conditions and feel the best I have ever felt. I have completed multiple half and full marathons as well as three half-Ironman 70.3 events and my first full Ironman 140.6.
I embrace a healthy and happy lifestyle and hope I can inspire and motivate others to take control of their lives and get healthy!
