Weight Management with Bariatric Surgery
Pam lost half her weight with bariatric surgery, going from a size 28 to a size 8 and through this process she gained a support system, the energy to keep up with her young granddaughter and a whole new purpose in life.
After discussing all her options with our team, Pam decided on a gastric bypass. It is one of several procedures that are particularly effective for diabetic patients.
Now, Pam has taken on the role of cheerleader for St. Vincent’s Weight Loss Services. She even attends the Weight Loss Surgery Meetings to give possible candidates a look into a patient’s experience. Pam says “It keeps it real for me and it’s my ultimate tool to talk to people about the journey. I try to let them know I am the rule not the exception. Surgery is really the beginning of the journey not the end.”
