Bariatric Surgeon: Dr. Ricardo Bonnor
Patient: Katia Anderson
I was having trouble doing exercise, going for bike rides with my kids and having problems with my back. I am young, I have three beautiful children and a wonderful husband. For my situation gastric bypass would give me the best results.
At Memorial City we have a great team of doctors, and professional team of nurses and technicians in the operating room where we carry out a standardized way of doing the operation, keeping the complication rate very low. Bypass is a two-component operation, we're decreasing the size of the stomach so it is producing a restriction, therefore, allowing or creating less volume in the stomach, and we're changing the gastrointestinal tract, the configuration of your intestines, you're not going to be absorbing all of the calories your ingesting.
I can now do anything, go on bike rides with my kids, dance for hours - it was the best decision I ever made, it was the right thing for me.
