Joanne’s journey into the world of weight loss surgery first began in 2014 at the age of 41. The idea of what some would call “weight control” was rather difficult in her family as each of them had suffered from various autoimmune conditions that caused their weight to fluctuate abnormally. Both Joanne’s mother and brother were the first to venture into weight loss surgery, and after their amazing results, she was convinced and felt compelled to explore those weight loss options to ensure many healthy years ahead for her.
MOMENT OF CHANGE
After researching many options, Joanne found that West Medical had a very high success rate in weight loss surgery. Once meeting with our physicians, her options were laid out in front of her in explicit detail, and no questions or concerns were left unaddressed. West Medical helped Joanne evaluate numerous weight loss options that led her to undergo the gastric sleeve procedure. In under a year, I have lost 80 pounds, and most importantly, am better prepared to maintain an ideal weight.
REWARDS OF A NEW LIFE
Since post-op, Joanne’s quality of life has been restored. Her autoimmune condition has been significantly impacted for the better, leaving her with more energy to perform daily activities and spend time with her loved ones. Joanne is now also able to fit into clothes that accentuate her features without making her feel ashamed of her appearance. In under a year, Joanne lost 80 pounds, and most importantly, is now better prepared to maintain an ideal weight. I am truly grateful for the opportunity I have been given, and know that I could not have traveled down this road alone. West Medical has truly given me the gift of life.
