Bariatric Surgery Patients Experience Life Changing Benefits

At Providence, we are dedicated to supporting patients and their families in anyway possible. Don’t take our word for it. The following testimonials are from patients whose lives have been transformed by the Bariatric Care Center.

These patients generously allowed us to tell their stories and share their pictures because they believe that sharing their experiences might give someone else the courage to make that first step towards a happier and healthier lifestyle, just like they have enjoyed since coming to Providence Hospital’s Bariatric Care Center.

"My bariatric surgery was a life changing event and I want to feel like this forever!” 

'A friend of mine who found success at Providence recommended the Bariatric Care Center to me… after my first seminar at Providence I knew I wanted to have the surgery here!"


Thomas Prune lost 90 lbs and counting

"Look at me I’m a winner!”

"The biggest benefit to having the surgery is how much more time I spend with family… before the surgery I didn't have the energy to do anything, I would come home, eat, and go to sleep. Now I have the energy to play basketball with the kids, go on walks with my wife. We spend more time together as a family."

"The care and service here at Providence is Grade A, I enjoyed the company here... The Doctors, Nurses, and the Staff are like a family here. I want to thank them for helping me get to where I'm at."

If you are ready for a change and want to feel like the best you possible, call (877) 9-YES-I-CAN to register for an FREE informational seminar or see our Classes and Events calendar for more detail. Seminars are held every month at Providence and St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lanham where the surgeon or staff member reviews the surgical procedures in detail.
