Meet Norma, who is not only one of our wonderful employees, but also a patient of ours!
She underwent Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery with our Dr. Ganser, and has lost over 200 pounds!
“When I went for my first consult with Dr. Ganser, my body mass index was was over 50. I had diabetes and high blood pressure. What’s more, because of my obesity, I had blood clots that went to my lung and I almost died!
Dr. Ganser was the first doctor that told me it was not all my fault. I remember I cried in the exam room. I will always be grateful to Dr. Ganser for the “tool” of a bariatric surgery."
Normal attended our bariatric support group, and was offered a job working with us, and has worked at Western Surgical Group now for almost six years.
"I am thankful that Western Surgical Group's Dr. Mark Kozar and Dr. John Ganser have expert training in bariatric procedures. If you work very hard and make the behavioral changes your health will greatly improve! Because of surgeons like them, patients that struggle with the disease of obesity have a chance of having a healthier life. I have a quality of life I thought I would never have and I am grateful every day.”View on Facebook
