Dr. Garber Appears on Dr. Oz’s Show – With Video

As you previously read, our lead surgeon, Dr. Shawn Garber, offered his insight and expert analysis of the new lap band surgery qualifications on the Dr. Oz show. His take on the effectiveness, non-invasive nature, and viability for small amounts of weight loss was backed up by guests of Dr. Oz who actually had bariatric surgery.

On the show, there was almost unanimous praise for the benefits of bariatric surgery. The drawback that they leaned heavily on was the restricted diet one must adhere to, but despite the lower volume of food, the guests on the show backed up Dr. Garber’s claim that bariatric surgery, while not a cure-all, can provide wonderful benefits to a patient in need of weight reduction. It can help lessen or even eradicate diabetes. It can lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and in the long run extend one’s like (and greatly increase the quality of life as well).

Within our Information Bariatric Videos section you can find the portion of the show that featured our very own Dr. Garber, with positive takes on post-surgery life from some real-life bariatric surgery patients.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.
