Nothing gives us more pleasure than seeing the results and life change in our patients after Lap-Band weight-loss surgery.
Here are a few stories from our many thrilled patients.
Terri B, Tulsa
“In 2006 I weighed almost 200 pounds. That’s when I decided to do whatever it took to get back to a healthy weight. I started going to a personal trainer 3 times a week and running. I lost about 65 pounds and looked better than I ever had. I ran a marathon and several half marathons before I found out I had a slight heart problem and was put on medication that lowered my heart rate, therefore lowering my metabolism. I started gaining weight rapidly and gave up on running and working out for awhile. I eventually changed medication and got some energy back. I started going back to the trainer but running hurt so bad since I was carrying more weight. After several months of trying to work my butt off with no results, I made the decision to seek out Lap-Band surgery. At this point I was almost back up to 200 pounds and felt horrible.
I had lap band surgery on June 30, 2011, the day that changed my life forever. Since then I have lost over 70 pounds going from a size 14/16 to a 0/2!!
I could have never done this without the help of Dr. Atkins and the people at Lab-Band Center of Oklahoma. I once again feel good about how I look. I even started running again and took 10 minutes off my half marathon PR.”
“People don’t stare at me anymore. I can shop in any store I want and find clothes that fit. The most wonderful feeling was when I was able to ride Space Mountain with my son!! Lap-Band surgery was the “Best decision I’ve made for myself and my family!” Read More >>
