A National Health Problem

If you are morbidly obese, you are not alone. In 2004 a study released by Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that deaths due to poor diet and physical inactivity rose by 33 percent over the past decade and may soon overtake tobacco as the leading preventable cause of death.

PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
Going through the process of gastric bypass surgery gave me affirmation, confidence and encouragement. My affirmation came in the form of a friend having the procedure done on the same day as me and being my roommate at the hospital. I was confident with my decision knowing that God placed a friend on this journey with me. One who would understand completely any and all emotions or struggles I had. I've been encouraged by the support of my friend, our support group, my family and other friends. I've used and will continue to use my surgery testimony to help others along their journey.
Facing risks of serious health problems because of my obesity, including Type 2 Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, and Heart Disease, HOPE Bariatrics gave me the tools I needed to begin a healthier life. Within the past year, I have been able to lose 100 pounds and went from a size 22 to a size 10. The person I was before surgery is gone and I will not let her come back. I have more energy, able to run and play with my kids, and now promote a healthier lifestyle in my home.
I thank God for giving me the friend I need to go through this journey, the family to support me, and a company like HOPE Bariatrics that equipped me with the tools necessary and continues to encourage me, give me access to a nutritionist and nurse, and for making me part of their family.
