Real patients share a few thoughts on their experiences with surgical weight loss.

Chad: Lost 136 lbs. Gained Endless Energy

Best Children's Hospitals -  U.S. News - Orthopedics 2015-16

"I knew that I needed to change my life. I was unhealthy, and I wasn't pleased with the direction my life was taking. This surgery has been the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I feel like a new person. I have an incredible amount of energy and feel like I could just keep going and going."

Lisa Lost 115 lbs. Gained a Healthy Lifestyle

Best Children's Hospitals -  U.S. News - Orthopedics 2015-16

"In struggling with my weight my whole life, I managed to diet my way to over 300 lbs. And that was with every combination of diet and exercise program around! At that weight, life was a constant struggle and I was very worried about my health. Even though I was young, I had high blood pressure, was borderline diabetic and suffered from constant lower back pain. Once I went to the patient seminar and got all the information, I immediately knew it was right for me. Since my surgery, I no longer have high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels or lower back pain!"
