Joann will be your very own Patient Facilitator throughout your journey. She will be there to support, listen, and follow up with you throughout your entire Lap-Band journey – even if it’s years after you were banded! She can answer any of your questions and/or concerns, and tell you anything you want to know about the Lap-Band. JoAnn is a past patient of Dr. Kuri’s and has experienced weight loss success with the Lap-Band firsthand!
Joann was banded by Dr. Kuri in 2006, and lost over 100 lbs in her first year. JoAnn’s background in the medical field has helped her understand the importance of being at a healthy weight and the incredible toll that carrying excess weight can have on your body and your life.
The privilege of working as a Facilitator for Dr. Kuri and Associates has become my purpose and passion. Dr. Kuri and the Lap-Band has given me back my life and it is now my mission to help as many people as possible attain this surgery. Guiding people through the process of shedding the shackles of excess weight that has bound them is of primary importance to me. I want them to experience the joy that comes from being at a normal and healthy weight once again. My background as a ICU/Interventional nurse has been of primary importance in preparing me to educate people as they journey through this surgery process and beyond.
