Real results from
real people, like you!


Results from bariatric surgery vary depending on many factors including, original weight, age and health. The following are experiences from some of our patients. 

Marie A.

My name is Marie. I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and my GP put me on medicine. That was the last straw, especially since I was already in a lot of pain with my feet, legs, knees, back and stomach problems. I did not want to be a burden on my husband and family if I couldn't walk. So, I had to do something.


I was scared to have surgery at age 65. Dr. Nakhjo was very supportive and said because I was in good health, he felt that I was a very good candidate for the surgery.


I was operated on for gastric sleeve surgery on October 13, 2016. I was 254 pounds. Because of the surgery, I could not overeat. My stomach was smaller and it told me quite clearly that I was full.


I lost 100 pounds within a year of the surgery and have kept it off ever since.


Dr. Nakhjo was very patient and caring throughout the procedure and afterwards during office visits.


I was grateful to Dr. Nakhjo who encouraged me to attend a support group at Newton Hospital. There, I was able to receive many pointers and help towards eating healthy and keeping my weight under control. I was able to exercise 3 times a week after some weight loss and have continued to do so. I also daily watch what and when I eat and drink. Because of my surgery, I am able to enjoy my grandchildren without pain of lifting, climbing stairs, walking, running, playing games, etc. Sleeve surgery is definitely a life-changing experience. I highly recommend and thank Dr. Nakhjo.

Dr. Nakhjo gave me the tool to lead a healthier life. He provided me with the sleeve surgery to start my dream life career as a nurse. I was able to lose 108 lbs. I am no longer pre-diabetic. I continue to strive for a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Nakhjo and his staff were amazing. The gastric sleeve is a great tool to use in the journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle. Thank you Dr. Nakhjo.


Dr. Nakhjo gave me my life back. I was always tired. I didn’t get good sleep. I had sleep apnea and I was on medication for high blood pressure. I was also on medication for high cholesterol and triglycerides. Since my sleeve surgery I have lost 220 lbs. and I no longer take medications. I move more every day and I do not need my CPAP machine at night. Thank you Dr Nakhjo.
