Success Stories

Amanda Weight Loss

Amanda's Story

“Since my procedure, I’m schooling others on the benefits of weight loss surgery.”

As a school principal. Amanda knows life is all about choices. She knew she made the right one after losing 100 pounds following weight loss surgery. Now she happily shares her knowledge with others interested in choosing it for themselves. Like any true academic, Amanda did her research and learned the answer was close to home at the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Bariatric Center – the only hospital in the Southeast Texas region designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. She was confident our highly skilled surgeons and staff were uniquely qualified to help her safely and permanently achieve her weight loss goals.

Daphne Weight Loss Surgery

Daphne's Story

“After my surgery, I felt like lifting, running, swimming and jumping for joy.”

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 They’ve been replaced by a newfound confidence and a passion for working out.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.

Kevin Weight Loss

Kevin's Story

“Since my weight lost surgery, I’m seeing double. Every chance I get.”

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.
