Weight Loss Surgery Testimonial Pottstown

Starting Weight: 241 lbs Seven months post-op: 170 lbs Weight loss to date: 71 lbs

I had my laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy in October 2014, at Pottstown Hospital.

From my first meeting with my physician and his team - Bariatric Surgery Program Coordinator, Jennifer Gambone, and Dietitian, Shreya Patel - I have had nothing but good things to say; in fact, my admiration grows with each conversation/meeting. They are all fantastic, supportive, caring and most important of all - available.

I know they are there to help me. My whole experience has been nothing but wonderful! The Bariatric Program at Pottstown gave me my life back. Since the surgery, I'm healthier, confident and happier with myself. I'm a better mother because I have more mobility and energy, and can now fully enjoy my children. I feel like a new person.

Lisa M., Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

My Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy was performed on December 24, 2014. At my highest weight I weighed 250lbs. As of today, I am 5 months post-op and I am happy to say, I have lost a total of 62lbs.

My feet, legs and back used to hurt all the time prior to my weight loss. I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath.

So how did bariatric surgery change my life? By the mercy of God, I believe I have another chance to live a healthy lifestyle. It helped me gain control of my life in so many ways. I am able to be comfortable in my body. I am able to be more active with my family. It feels wonderful to be healthy now with no health issues.
