Below is a short video of Mary Kay Langolf. Mary Kay's weight had gone up and down all her life.  It wasn't until she went to a gastric bypass surgery seminar from Balette Bariatric Center that she learned about gastric bypass.

Our potential patients learn about each bariatric surgery type and what changes occur. They are also required to see a licensed dietitian with expertise in weight loss surgery and get a psychiatric clearance before proceeding.

Sandy Nuber lost Over 100 Pounds After Her Lap Band Surgery

I'm Sandy and I lost my best friend from morbid obesity. She was 46. Too young to die. I was 280 lbs. and knew that I loved life and I wanted to live. I tried every weight loss program known to man with no lasting success.

I was Type II diabetic and had high blood pressure along with acid reflux. I had the lap-band procedure and have lost 100 lbs. I no longer take any medications.

I want to thank Dr. Balette for not only saving my life but giving me my life back. I'm living life and living large!

Thanks again Dr. Balette, 
YOU ROCK! :) 
Sandy Nuber
