Patients 40-59 Years Old
Total Pounds Lost: 180
Testimonials: In December 2020 I was facing a major back surgery while having a least five herniated disks in my back. I had already had a knee surgery and my ankles were getting pretty bad as well. At the time I weighed 390lbs and was 41 years old. I had a choice to make and I chose to fight so I could be there for my family. 3 months later in March of 2021 I was visiting with Dr. Ariel Ortiz a few hours before my scheduled surgery wondering if I had made the right decision. Now I am 2 years post op and over 180lbs down. I am doing things now that I never thought I would be able to do again. I can run, swim, play basketball and am a much better husband and father. I am pain free and have desires to try new things where 2 years ago I was always tired and in pain. I wish I would have done it sooner. What an amazing journey this has been.
