GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Every year thousands of people undergo bariatric surgery, but not all procedures work for all people.
Our Ask the Expert in weight loss, Doctor Paul Kemmeter of Saint Mary's Health Care, joins us with one of their patients, Stephanie Park. Dr. Kemmeter shares information about revision surgery, particularly revision from gastric banding to another procedure. Stephanie had a revision from gastric band to RNY gastric bypass and she shares why she chose the band initially, why she and her healthcare team decided it wasn't working for them, and what the new procedure was and how much success they're seeing since it was performed. You can find out what the best options may be for you by attending a free weight loss seminar on November 17 at 10 a.m. or on December 4 at 6:30 p.m. Both events will be held at Grand Health Partners. Visit their website at www.saintmarysweightloss.org or give them a call at 616-685-3333 to save your spot today.
