Gastric Sleeve Surgery Patient Testimonial

With years of experience and training, Dr. Frenzel is the leader in bariatric weight loss surgery.  One of the most popular bariatric surgery is the gastric sleeve procedure.  Gastric sleeve, also known as the sleeve gastrectomy, rivals the gastric bypass for weight loss, but does not have some of the possible complications of the gastric bypass.

Candidates for the gastric sleeve include those who are in good mental health, are 18 years old or older, need to lose 50 pounds and have a body mass index of 35 or greater.  Many of Dr. Frenzel’s patients have had incredible success with the gastric sleeve bariatric procedures.

Leanor sought out Dr. Frenzel, weight 279 pounds.  Because of a lack of self-confidence and embarrassment, she avoided the gym and, in turn, stayed home and watched television.

Dr. Frenzel discussed the many different weight loss procedures available and together they determined that the gastric sleeve surgery was the best option for Leanor.  After the surgery, her self-image has sky-rocketed.  She feels good about herself and can’t stop thinking about how she should wishes she would have proceeded with bariatric surgery years ago.

Upon their first consultation, Leanor felt at peace with Dr. Frenzel.  She immediately felt comfortable with him and could voice all of her questions and concerns.  She also liked the thought of having one surgeon who could take her through a complete transformation—from gastric sleeve surgery to follow-up visits and into the cosmetic plastic surgery aspects.

But Leanor isn’t the only one to tell her story of gastric sleeve surgery.  Amy Burgdorf also had the gastric sleeve procedure done.  In a couple months after surgery, Amy lost 40 pounds.  She, like Leanor, felt comfortable with Dr. Frenzel and the staff at Advanced Bariatric Surgery.  She appreciated the attentiveness of the staff.  Dr. FRenzel checked on Amy before and after the surgery, which made her feel really good.

It wasn’t until having children that Amy experienced any weight-related self-doubt.  Now that she has had the surgery and lost the weight she is finding it easier to work out, eat right, and sleep through the night.  Her energy level has improved drastically and she loves the way she feels.

If you are like Leanor or Amy and want to reclaim your confidence, contact Dr. Frenzel today and schedule your initial consultation.  During your first meeting, you can discuss any issues you are currently facing and discuss how to proceed and which procedure is best for you and your situation.  Dr. Frenzel wants to make sure you feel comfortable with your decisions.

It is important that you take time to consider your options and choose the best option for your body.  The gastric sleeve bariatric surgery is designed to create a thin vertical sleeve of stomach using a stapling device.  About 80 percent of the stomach is removed and the new stomach, the sleeve, is created to limit food intake and help you feel full faster.
