Hi, I’m Jennifer, and I had lap band surgery almost two years ago in May. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I feel great now. I lost 45 pounds, and more importantly, I’ve been able to keep it off.

So my weight loss struggles came in college, and I gained the classic freshman 15, and then it continued, and thus began my whole weight loss struggle, and it was just years of yoyo dieting. I’ve probably tried every diet there is, every program, and you know, it would last for a while. I’d lose some weight, and then eventually I’d gain it back and then some, so it was frustrating and it went on for many years, and eventually I got married and got to a healthy weight, and that didn’t last long, and eventually I began my cycle all over again, and I reached a point of a weight that I wasn’t comfortable with. I had a hard time exercising due to joint pain and hip pain, and I think the last straw was then no diet was really working for me, so I decided to go to my general doctor to get diet pills, and unfortunately he wouldn’t give them to me, but he did suggest lap band surgery, and I was a little shocked and surprised, but it did give me something to think about, so I went home, did a ton of research on weight loss surgery, and Dr. Ganta’s name kept coming up, so that’s when I decided to register for one of his informational seminars here at his office, and that began my journey into weight loss surgery.

So I chose Dr. Ganta to perform my lap band surgery. As soon as I went to his seminar, I knew he was the perfect doctor for me. Not only was he an expert in the field, but I felt like he just generally cared about you. Definitely no nonsense – he told it, you know, like it is, but I also could see that he truly did care about you. I also loved the fact that his office had a total care program, so not only, you know, was the surgery important, but also after the surgery, and so that made me feel like he was going to be there throughout the whole process to make sure I was going to meet my goals and he was going to help me along the way, so that really made me feel comfortable that he was the right doctor for me.

My life after lap band surgery has been terrific. It has definitely given me a tool to use to help control my portions and to keep the weight off. Before, losing weight was not really the issue, but it was keeping it off, so now after two years of having the surgery, I feel an incredible freedom. I can eat within my portions, but I also know that I’m going to have this wonderful tool then to help me keep this weight off, and you know, I no longer have my hi[ pain and joint pain, so I’m able to exercise, and you know, having a five-year-old and keeping up with him has just truly been a blessing, and I couldn’t have done a better thing for myself.

I think if someone were looking into weight loss surgery, I would definitely recommend Dr. Ganta. From the beginning, I felt like he was the best surgeon – form the beginning to doing the surgery, but then also aftercare. Doing my research, I found a lot of information about weight loss surgeries, and I was very excited that he also was committed to an aftercare program, so that meant that not only from day one, but then a year out, he’s there making sure that you are succeeding with your goals.

So not only is Dr. Ganta a remarkable surgeon, but he’s also very caring and listens to you at every appointment, so there was never a time that I felt that I was rushed through my appointment. He was there generally making sure that you got what you needed, and he was there every step of the day throughout the process, so there’s be no one else I’d want to entrust my care to. With having gone through the weight loss surgery, I think Dr. Ganta is the best choice.
