Weight Loss Surgery Story

May 28, 2019

Getting Her Life Back After Bariatric Surgery


The story of weight loss surgery—told by patients themselves. Desert Care Network's weight management specialists provide a multidisciplinary approach that helps to both eliminate weight and provide the support necessary to keep it off.

These testimonials reflect the experience and outcome of these patients. Actual criteria for weight loss surgery is a Body Mass Index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. As each case is different and must be independently evaluated and managed, actual results will vary.
