Learn about some of our many bariatric surgery patients whose lives were transformed after successful surgery:
Andrea's Story: "Through talking to people at the support groups, meeting with the nurse coordinator, the dieticians and Dr. Bloomenthal and doing my own research, I realize that this surgery is not the easy way out. This is for people who have tried again and again, year after year to win the battle. This surgery is the beginning tool to give me a new lease on life. I am so appreciative to Dr. Bloomenthal for helping me regain my life.”
Ann's Story: “I knew I was a big risk because of my weight, but I felt like no one wanted to help me. That changed when I contacted Newton- Wellesley Hospital,” says Ann. Pablo Gazmuri, MD, Associate Medical Director and Surgeon at the Center for Weight Loss Surgery (CWLS), spoke to Ann the day she called looking for more information about gastric bypass surgery.
John's Story: Since his weight loss surgery, John’s life has changed in many ways."I now coach my son’s senior little league team," says John. "I give the kids a challenge at every game, which always involves me running.
Ryan's Story: "Every breath I take I enjoy again. Dr. Partridge saved my life. She always says I’m doing all the work, and although I am working hard, without the jumpstart that this surgery gives, I would probably be in serious, morbid health right now – if not dead. I have finally taken back my life. I wake up feeling so good every day – it’s just miraculous."
