I HAD TO SAVE MY LIFE!
I went to my family doctor and was told I was morbidly obese. I needed to lose the weight quickly or lose my life. I didn’t have enough time to lose the weight through exercise and diet. My doctor suggested weight loss surgery immediately to avoid having a stroke. That was the most fear I had ever experienced within my life.
Once the initial shock set in, I began my search for a bariatric surgeon to trust with my life. After the disappointment of speaking with many surgeons within the Florida and Texas area, I was blessed with the chance of finding Dr. John Alexander.
How is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Different from Gastric Bypass?
Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the newest types of bariatric surgery for weight loss.
Sleeve gastrectomy boasts several specific advantages over other types of laparoscopic weight loss surgery. The procedure is simpler than other laparoscopic weight loss surgery options, with lower risks and fewer side effects.

This surgery can also be referred to as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
