In Patricia’s Words:

“I've lost over 225 pounds* since having the duodenal switch in November of 2011 and my life has been transformed. My sleep apnea, diabetes and high blood pressure have all been resolved and my asthma and joint pain are greatly improved. I actually enjoy walking now, I buy clothes in a "normal" store and do a thousand other things I never would have thought I'd do again. Most important of all, losing weight has given me hope for the future. Life is so much more enjoyable and I can't wait for the next adventure! I have my life back thanks to Dr. Srikanth and the wonderful staff at C4WLS.” – Tricia
