Stephanie lost nearly 100 lbs as a result of her bariatric surgery. Her success resulted from having an excellent Fresno Bariatric surgeon, and from following her doctor’s instructions after surgery.

Ray & Margaret
In this weight loss surgery video, Ray and Margaret share their experience of bariatric weight loss surgery as a couple. The happily married couple underwent their individual surgeries roughly a week apart, allowing them to experience every step of the process at almost exactly the same time. Becoming healthier hand in hand made the entire process easier for both of them. Previously, they tried numerous diets and exercise programs only to experience failure. Bariatric surgery was the only option that offered the results they had been seeking.
Before Jan underwent bariatric surgery at Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, she was facing a major medical problem that was a direct result of her excess weight. Her doctor informed her that she had a failing liver and explained that, due to her age, she was not a candidate for a new liver. After the bariatric surgery, her liver recovered as she experienced a decrease in weight. Jan loved her surgical experience at Fresno Bariatric. In addition to adding years to her life, the care team made her feel unique, treating her like an individual throughout the process and customizing her care to her specific needs.
Cynthia is an example of how quickly some people can experience success from bariatric surgery. At the age of 54, she realized that she was simply incapable of managing her weight alone. Cynthia was suffering from several co-morbid conditions, diabetes, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure. A year after surgery, she no longer suffered from any of these medical issues and was able to enjoy activities like exercising, playing with her grandchildren, and riding her Harley Davidson. Cynthia has lost over 100 lbs so far. Because of her new understanding of nutrition and diet, Cynthia is sure she will keep it off in the future!
Cathy is thrilled with the way Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital helped her on her journey towards a healthier life. Before bariatric surgery, Cathy suffered from diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Since surgery, her blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol have all been within normal levels. The change is nothing short of miraculous in her opinion, and she credits Fresno Bariatric with giving her life back to her. Cathy intends to take advantage of her new, healthy life by spending it with those she loves the most!
