“After I had surgery and changed my life style, I am now at 130 pounds. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in years since Dr. Bellanger performed my gastric bypass. I wanted to lose 80-85 lbs. and I have lost 81.
“Dr. Bellanger was very patient with me prior to surgery. He answered all my questions, some of the answers I did not want to hear, but needed to hear such as “Your comorbidities will not just go away, you must lose this excess weight and keep it off. This is a life changing surgery, you must be willing to change some of your eating and exercise (or lack of) habits.”
“My surgery was performed at Vista Surgical Hospital in Baton Rouge, their entire staff was extremely nice and understanding.
