Gastric Sleeve: Amy

I had severe heel pain and during my last physical, they thought they heard a hole in my heart. I had it checked out and everything was fine. However, everything that seemed to go wrong, I associated it with my excessive weight. I chose the Gastric Sleeve surgery because I felt it was a bit less invasive. I was hesitant with surgery at first but Dr. Ayoola answered all the questions I had and i was able to feel confident in the decision we made. I feel so much better now that I’ve had the surgery.

Amy had a really great recovery. She has come back to the office for her post op and  her 3 month and 6 month visits. she’s had excellent weight loss and feels great.

The remaining stomach is a long tube shaped like a very slender banana. It can hold between 1 and 5 ounces. The surgery helps you lose weight by restricting the amount of food (and, therefore, calories) that can be eaten at one time. The part of the stomach that is removed secretes a hormone called ghrelin which is partly responsible for appetite and hunger. Due to the decreased amount […]

Jason: Duodenal Switch Surgery Results

I chose weight loss surgery after health issues such as Plantar Fasciitis and Herniated Disks led to me being unable to exercise or complete many of life's routine daily activities. I was referred by a former patient who happens to be my sister, and I was excited to have already seen the transformation in quality of life the surgery had on her and several friends from the Facebook DS groups.

Denver and Rachel: Sleeve Gastrectomy

Go through our closet and pull clothes out that we can’t wear any longer. I’ve got over 50 shirts that I can literally wrap around me twice. That’s how much in eight months weight we’ve lost. It’s kind of depressing, because you’ve invested all this money in clothes and you can’t wear them anymore. You’re literally starting over.
