Lena B. Had Gastric Bypass Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

One day as I was leaving work I bent down to pick up my purse, which had dropped on the floor, only to realize that I was unable to help myself back up. My knees were killing me, but the pain I felt from them was nothing compared to what I felt inside.

Lena B.

After years of trying every weight loss fad, exercise craze, diet, pill, and "instant trick", my rock bottom came with the simple act of picking up my purse. One day as I was leaving work I bent down to pick up my purse, only to realize that I was unable to help myself back up. My knees were killing me, but the pain I felt from them was nothing compared to what I felt inside. I began to see doctors across town, each of whom shut me down for any number of cryptic reasons. Only when I came to Dr. Korman did I know that my life was about to transform. At the time I was a little over 250 lbs. Even though the weight was causing health issues, it was the way I felt about myself that hurt the most.  Dr. Korman and I decided on a gastric bypass. The folks at Marina Del Rey helped me put together a detailed exercise and nutrition plan, guiding me through each step of the process. It's been three years since the surgery and I’ve managed to keep the weight off. Thank you, Marina Del Rey!
