Success Stories


 
 
   

“I came to Dr Sherwinter's office when I was in a very bad place both mentally and physically in life. I had allowed myself to let go for nearly 10+ years and was nearing 300 pounds. I decided that enough was enough and through many glowing recommendations, I chose Dr. Sherwinter because of the amazing work he's done with his patients. When I walked into his office prior to my vertical sleeve gastrectomy procedure (VSG), I weighed 284 pounds. Today I am a little over 5 months post-op  and I weigh 182 pounds. I can honestly say that when  I look in the mirror, I see a completely new person standing in front of me. And it’s something I appreciate more than ever.

Two years later, over 100lbs lighter, and 14 inches off my waistline, I feel like a new man! My surgeon and his staff are great, I haven’t been happier and no longer embarrassed to be in front of the camera. The lap band has helped me gain my self confidence back, it’s one of my best decisions made. I’m finally off medications and healthy again. I now enjoy activities with my family and love my new clothes!

"Before I met Dr. Sherwinter and his staff, this was me....type 2 diabetic, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis in my knees and ankles.  Now, a year and a half later and approximately 96 pounds lighter, I am off most of my medications, no longer taking diabetic medication and on a lower dose for blood pressure.  I have more energy now, I can go up and down stairs without losing my breath and I can cross my legs...but most exciting of all is i can shop in any store I want!"

“I battled with my weight throughout my childhood and adolescence. Before I knew it I was a 27 year old woman with a very big weight problem, who was taking 7 pills and 2 injections daily for diabetes and other weight related issues. I was unhappy and scared and realized it was time to do something. Dr. Sherwinter and his staff were wonderful and made me feel at ease. February 16, 2011 I had Lapband surgery and not only did the surgery help me to lose close to 150lbs but, I have not taken a pill or injected myself since my surgery.  Having this surgery was the best decision I have ever made. No regrets!!”

I have always struggled with my weight beginning in childhood. I've tried almost every diet plan and have been unsuccessful at them, I began to believe being big was always going to be my normalcy. When my health started to deteriorate from being obese, I decided to take action and with the help and support from the Bariatric team I was able to be  successful . I thank them immensely for giving  me the ability to have a new normal life. Love you guys...

    Coming to you for my 5/25/2011 lapband procedure was the best thing that happened to me.  Beginning with Laura, my journey to a healthier life began.  Naturally because this was still surgery, I was somewhat anxious.  I was recommended by 2 people (patients), who raved about their successes. I will say that having the BEST surgeon (and support staff) is by far the most important step to take.  I was at ease and thankfully in great hands. I weighed 199 lbs before my surgery in March 2011.  It is now May 17, 2012 (a week away from my 1 year mark) and I have lost 47 lbs. My goal pushes me to lose another 15-20 lbs total.  My loss of 47 lbs has made me a new person.  I have turned 50 in December, and I no longer am on the way to Type 2 Diabetes or Heart Disease. I AM however, in the gym 5-6 days a week, have energy I never dreamed of, feel like the active girl I used to be, and actually feel younger.  Although this process was the easy part, I still must watch what I eat, and pay attention to my health.  Lapband is a wonderful tool if you are lucky enough to be on the opposite side of this medical group.  You saved my life and my outlook on life.
