Kyle M. started the Deaconess Weight Loss program in October of 2014. His early adoption of the program guidelines and activities, allowed him to have significant success well before his surgery took place.

What our patients are saying...

"June 16, 2017 marked 18 months since my gastric bypass.  Yesterday,  I stepped on the scale and when I realized I finally was in the NORMAL BMI range, I almost cried.  I never remember a time when I was as healthy as I am today.  I praise God for the astonishing transformation I have been through.  I have definitely been dealt the challenges over the months; however,  they have just proven to me how strong I am.  I never imagined I could or would lose 171 lbs.  I can finally enjoy life and not watch it pass me by.  I have added years to my life and decreased my chances of dying from obesity related diseases.  I AM STRONG!!  This is not the end, only the start to a whole new chapter in my life." – M.
