KaWanna is a young mom, but being obese made it hard for her to keep up with day-to-day activities, like washing dishes, cooking, and playing with her daughter. She suffered from hip and joint pain daily. She finally decided it was time for a change.
After receiving Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery, KaWanna lost 130 pounds and no longer has these issues.

Steve is a father who was too overweight to be active with his children. He was diagnosed with diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure); he had a lack of energy, was unmotivated and was, possibly, depressed. After struggling with controlling his
weight through diet, his doctor introduced him to weight loss surgery. Although surgery scared him, he found comfort when he attended pre-surgery visits with Dr. Aryaie. Today, he is 110 pounds lighter and is no longer taking diabetes or hypertension
medications and is active with his kids.
