Patricia P. Had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

I would advise people considering this type of surgery to be ready to commit themselves 100% to the work that needs to be done in order to change their lifestyles.

Patricia P.

When I contacted Marina Weight Management Center, I was desperate to lose weight. I had back problems and suffered from constant pain but my doctors were unable to perform back surgery because of my weight. Fortunately, Dr. Korman agreed to operate on me in order to reduce the size of my stomach and help me regain my pain-free life. After the sleeve gastrectomy, I weigh 128 pounds less and live a life with no more back pain. My biggest success is that I have become a happier person. Before having both of the surgeries, my back pain would prevent me from getting a good night's sleep and I was always rude and easily annoyed by everything. Now that I am able to sleep properly, I am kinder and more patient. I think that the way my overall health has improved after the surgery is what keeps me motivated to continue working on developing a healthy lifestyle. I've had severe back issues, and I don't want to relive that time of my life.
