Sustaining long term weight is a difficult and complex issue. This statement is just as true for patients after weight loss surgery. Diet, exercise and behavior modification are essential to a patient’s success; however there are other factors that may be working against you. If you are a patient that has had bariatric surgery and have regained a significant amount of weight you may be a candidate for Revision Weight Loss Surgery.

Patient Testimonial: Ron, Age 46, Westbury, NY

“As a rescuer for 9/11 I found it difficult to maneuver around in the debris. I was not able to do much with my kids. I decided to have the gastric bypass with Dr Shawn Garber and it was the best decision I ever made! Five years after my gastric bypass surgery I regained some weight. After having the band over bypass, everything from walking, sleeping, and working became easier. At 6 months, I lost 80 lbs! That brought my total weight loss to 184lbs! Had I not had the surgery I would have had serious medical issues. Dr Garber and his staff were always very professional and caring. I have referred at least a half dozen people to Dr Garber and all my friends are doing excellent!”

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.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools y
