Since the inception of our bariatric program Your Solution at Texas Health Presbyterian Rockwall in 2008, we have performed hundreds of bariatric surgery procedures, including gastric sleeve, gastric banding (Realize® Band), gastric bypass and revisional procedures. That means we have helped over 500 patients, once struggling with weight and obesity related diseases, who are now able to enjoy their lives on their terms, in the life they desire. The following are just a few of those wonderful success stories. These patients wanted to share their own words of hope and encouragement to you. We hope that one day you, too, will be able to share in the life-changing benefits weight loss surgery can offer.
