Weight-loss surgery gives man new freedom

Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center | Weight-loss Surgery

“The top-notch care you receive at Legacy Weight and Diabetes Institute starts with the folks at the front desk and continues all the way through the organization.”

Mike Symons lost 220 pounds with the Roux-En-Y gastric bypass procedure. Through this weight-loss surgery, he went from 408 units of insulin per day to 0 — a cost savings of $4,000 a month!

Due to diabetes, Mike had to have both of his legs amputated from the knees down. He had lived immobilized for years as his weight made it impossible for him to use prosthetics. Today, he is able to use prosthetics to move about freely.

“Now, I get to spend more time with my grandchildren.”

Almost two years after Mike’s weight-loss surgery, he still attends one of the Weight and Diabetes Institute’s support groups. He started going to the group before his surgery and talks about how it has played a huge role in his success.

“You have to be committed to the program. Believing in it is half the battle.”

Mike so believed in the program that he referred his friend. His friend had the same weight-loss procedure and lost 190 pounds!

“My experience with weight-loss surgery was nothing short of fabulous!”
