*”I truly believe having the Gastric Bypass saved my life. I was morbidly obese. I broke the 400 lbs mark. I could diet and lose 50-60 pounds then I would plateau and out of frustration, I would gain it all back. I suffered from high blood pressure, migraine headaches, borderline diabetic, and physical pain. In 2009 I chose to have the Surgery, my weight quickly began to fall off. The best part of losing all the weight is my son. I have had 6 miscarriage I was told after a failed tubal ligation I would never be able to have a baby. My son was born 11/21/2013 I am very grateful for him and could not imagine my life without him. If faced with the decision to do the bypass again I would not hesitate, I got a second chance to do it, right this time. And I refuse to let myself go again, I currently weigh 124 lbs and holding steady 6 years later.”

I did the Sleeve surgery in December 2014 and the reasons why I did the surgery was because of the chronic illness and back pain due to my weight. I have not had Bronchitis since February and the year before that I had it 4 times, my animals even notice a difference and come to me more than they used to. My hair has even grown in thicker and healthier than when I was in grade school.

MISH was fabulous! I had my surgery over 8 years ago now, and have lost 174 pounds! I now weigh 168 pounds, and am so happy. I highly recommend MISH for Roux En Y Gastric Bypass surgery, and their follow-up program is wonderful. Thank you for changing my life....thank you for SAVING my life.

it’s been just barely 2 years and I have surpassed my goal of weight loss. I am 5’10” and my highest weight was 329 pounds. With the tool of lap band surgery and self-control, I am now 165 pounds! I used to be an athlete and a model and now at the age of 48, I have my body back. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks to the Dr and staff I had absolutely no problems. You guys are awesome!”

I left my doctor one day knowing that I needed to do something really drastic and soon. I have been dieting, losing weight, gaining, dieting and over and over, again and again. On my way home I heard a commercial about the Minimally Invasive Surgical Hospital and a free seminar to find out more. I did some research on the Internet, signed up and the rest was history. I was 465 pounds the day I heard that commercial and in 8 months have lost nearly 20 pants sizes and 170 pounds. I had fears about the surgery but I would do it again and recommend everyone who feels the need to at least look into it and visit a seminar. I didn’t talk to an assistant, but the surgeons themselves and it has changed my life forever. I forgot what living was all about, I forgot what it was like to walk more than 10 yards without pain or losing my breath. I can do a mile walk at a great pace and still go further when I have the time. I am doing things now that I haven’t done in nearly 20 years. I owe a lot to the surgeons and their expert staff from the smiling faces that greet you to the nurses and the surgeons that. They all will forever be a part of my family and life. This is just a tool, I have to discipline myself and change my life, but they couldn’t have given me a better tool to have.”
