"My life changed a lot the year I had surgery, some of it related to the surgery, and some of it not. However, surgery and losing weight allowed me to gain the confidence and stamina to face those heavy situations – divorce, a move, job loss – with my head held high. Surgery allowed me to find who I was again, to find the inner strength I didn’t know I had, and to finally become the person I’ve always wanted to be."

"Dr. Marone and his staff afforded me the opportunity to have a second chance at life. My health was in a downward spiral prior to meeting with them. Going through this journey it has helped me develop a better relationship with food. To anyone considering this surgery, my best advice to you is 'trust the process.'"

"I couldn't even walk a block without getting winded and my feet and knees in pain! I had bad headaches, severe sleep apnea, high blood pressure and was pre-diabetic. There was just so many things I couldn't do, or fit in and it was embarrassing. After my surgery it's like night and day! My A1C is the best it's ever been and I am no longer on blood pressure meds. My sleep quality has improved and I have much more energy. I feel much more healthy! I learned I am much more stronger and disciplined than I thought I ever could be."
