Daphne's Story Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Daphne lost 102 pounds. Not to mention her high blood pressure meds. They’ve been replaced by a newfound confidence and a passion for working out. In fact, shortly after her surgery, she felt strong and secure enough to enter Galveston’s Gritty Goddess Mud Run. Now it’s an annual tradition she and her friends never miss. Daphne credits the professionalism and expertise of the bariatric surgeons and staff at the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Bariatric Center – the only hospital in Southeast Texas to be designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. She says thanks to them the future looks sunny and bright. With some occasional mud.
