Over the years, I have tried to lose weight with Weight Watchers, South Beach Diet, and many others. Any weight I lost would slowly be regained, along with additional pounds. As I turned 70, I felt real frustration. After talking with friends and several people I know, it was clear that I needed another tool, something different than just another diet. My daughter researched both the lap-band and Gastric Sleeve procedures. With my daughters [...]
Dr. Kuri did my Lap Band on 10-5-2005. At that time I was significantly overweight, my 5’7” body was carrying 272 lbs. I had struggled with my weight for most of my adult life and after having my children the struggle became insurmountable. Since I was a nurse I was aware of the effects this excess weight would have on my health, I was close to 40 yrs. old and knew I needed to [...]
I am now down 140 and stable!!!
Down 31 pounds! Thank you, Dr. Kuri!!! Going strong
Remember a couple of months ago when I sent you some before-and-after pictures via Facebook? You said you'd like to use those for the Kuri website if I was willing and I said I'd be delighted, but allow me to knock off a few more. I've lost about ten more (averaging about a pound a week). I'm ready to make good on my word if you'd still like to. If not, then I'd just like [...]
I was banded on Nov.13th 2013 by Dr.Kuri. Two weeks after returning from Mexico I found out I was pregnant so my concentration on my weight loss was at a halt. I was concentrating on healing and just staying healthy. January 10th I unfortunately had a miscarriage but I had dropped 16lbs up to that point. My mind still was not on my weight loss for about a month later. Jan.31st I had my first [...]
"Without the band I would have fallen off the wagon and probably gained all my weight back plus some, but since I had that “tool”, I had hope." I was banded on March 03, 2006. My weight was 225, the highest I had ever been. I had struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I was so terrified that I would just keep gaining and gaining. If I had not had the LAP-BAND, I [...]
I am a 33-year-old mom who has struggled with weight my whole life. After I delivered my first son, I started doing some research on the Lapband. I talked to one of Dr. Kuri’s nurses and just wanted to learn more! While I was pregnant with my second son, my husband and I went to visit Dr. Kuri’s facility and were beyond impressed. Shortly after that I set my surgery date. I had my surgery [...]
"Since January 2010 I have lost 75lbs so far and am really happy. I am back into sizes that I wore 20 years ago. I feel so much better and am so grateful!!! I would still like to lose maybe another 15-20 pounds but I feel really good where I am." * Results may vary.

I found an old photo ID of mine from about 10 years ago, and couldn't believe it was me! I was trapped inside my own body, trying desperately to get out and just LIVE! I thank God every day for Dr. Kuri, his caring attitude, his wonderful staff, the awesome support I've always gotten and the great friends I've made along the way. The best advice I have is if you are genetically prone to [...]
“Being banded is the best thing I have ever done for myself…” I spent my youth on an island where I was constantly backpacking, camping, hiking, fishing & swimming & my 20s in the Sierra Nevada & Rocky Mountains & on the ocean as a commercial diver. I dove, taught skiing, packed mules & climbed mountains until I was in my mid 30s. I had lived a life of constant exercise & often, little money. [...]
