I just wanted to submit my success story for Dr. Owens Website. I had my surgery in May 2006. I was 256 at the time. I lost down to 135 and managed to keep it plateaued there til September 2007 when I had my plastic surgery done to augment my breasts and do a revised tummy tuck. I have been 135-140 since September 2007. I first got the surgery to help with an arthritic ankle that I was taking steroids to try and sequester the pain. The outlook was not positive on the path to resolving the pain. So in speaking with my orthopedic surgeon, he suggested weight loss surgery. I went through the process with Dr. Owen's staff there in Orange county and I was approved before too long. I adore Dr. Owens. He was so great to me during the whole process and seemed pretty stoked with the outcome. I have attached my pictures. The after side of this is from Labor day wknd.

I would like to thank Dr. Owens for giving me back what I didn't realize I had and that was my life! I now weigh 175 pounds. A loss of 177 pounds!! Over half of me…

Before the surgery Gabe suffered from severe sleep apnea, high blood pressure and heartburn.

“Due to Dr. Owens and his program team, I am healthier and more physically fit than ever. My energy level now rivals that of my sixteen-year-old twins. I have participated in two 5k walks and I'm working up to a three day walk. I'm enjoying my new look.”

Before the surgery Philip had high blood pressure, was on 2 Rx's, suffered from arthralgias, and high cholesterol. Philip is now 170 lbs lighter and takes no medication.
