Kevin's Weight Loss Story Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Kevin Weight Loss


Kevin lost 170 pounds. His identical twins gained a playmate. Before his weight loss surgery, Kevin couldn’t take part in simple family activities or outings. When chest pains sent him to the ER, he knew he must act.  Or his twins would be fatherless. After exploring surgery options in Houston, California and Mexico, he chose the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Bariatric Center – the only hospital in the Southeast Texas region designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. He was sure our highly skilled surgeons and specialists were uniquely qualified to help him safely and permanently achieve his weight loss goals. He also liked the idea of being closer to home and closer to his two boys. And today, they’re closer than ever.
