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 to share.

Banded August 31, 2010

At 345 pounds I knew I had to make a change. My knees, back, feet and blood pressure were killing me. I heard about Lap-Band surgery and decided it was for me. I decided to look outside the US for financial reasons. I had no idea when I started looking that I would find one of the best and most respected Lap-Band surgeons in the world. I couldn’t find (through extensive research) a single negative thing said about him! Dr. Kuri is way more experienced than any doctors in my area—and less expensive as well!!

Bariatric Weight-Loss Surgery success what usually comes to mind is the smiling faces of our patients as they share their “before and after pictures” with us. Certainly a patient reaching their goal weight is a huge success. But Dr. Kuri believes that success with bariatric Lap – Band Surgery begins long before the surgery is performed. A successful Bariatric surgery such as the Lap-Band procedure is often found in the details, before; during and after your weight loss surgery journey begins. If you have ever planned a trip, bought a car or had construction work done on your house, the details can often make the difference between success and disaster.
