LAP-BAND System - Testimonials  

For my entire life, I have battled with my weight. I would lose a few pounds, just to turn around and gain even more back. When I was at 200lbs, I told myself that I wouldn’t get any bigger. But before I knew it, I was at 300lbs. After that, I said I would never allow myself to get to 400 lbs. When the scale hit 409.5, I could hardly believe my eyes. Hitting that weight, I knew I needed to make a change because my life was at risk. I was struggling with serious back and knee issues, sleep apnea, high-blood pressure, depression, and I was pre-diabetic. With a BMI of close to 60, even the simple task of walking a short distance was a fight because of constant pain and breathing problems.

The moment that changed my life was when I attended Dr. Ginsburg’s Lap-Band Seminar. I came away with a sense of hope and a new determination that I could lose weight. In November 2009 I had the Lap-Band surgery, and my life hasn’t been the same since. With the support and encouragement from Dr. Ginsburg, his staff, my family and friends, I have been able to lose 215lbs and I currently weigh 194.5. My health has improved dramatically. I can now walk pain-free and without feeling breathless. I am enjoying things in life that I never thought I would do, like buying clothes that actually fit and are fashionable. But the greatest thing of all, I am finally able to ride a motorcycle with my Dad. So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You Dr. Ginsburg and your staff for giving me the chance to have a new & happy life.
