"After 27 years of failure and frustration, trying every diet and exercise regimen imaginable, I weighed nearly 300 pounds. My doctors told me that my health outlook was grim. If I didn't lose a significant amount of weight soon, I was facing the probability of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint problems, certain cancers - and the looming prospect of a massive heart attack. I was morbidly obese - so obese that I could die."
"Determined to safeguard my future, I chose weight loss surgery to deal with this lifelong, life-threatening weight problem."
"Sixteen months later and 155 pounds lighter, I'm healthier and happier than I've ever been. I'm active, optimistic about my career, recently married, and I've never felt better about my life."
Now the revolutionary minimally invasive surgical procedure that helped Carnie Wilson transform her life - laparoscopic gastric bypass - is available to you. By calling the number below, you can make an appointment for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for this life-altering surgery. The doctors at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center have been trained in the same protocol and use the same state-of-the art Vista Information and Visualization Technology system employed in Carnie's operation.
Your results may vary, but research on 500 cases published in the medical journal Obesity Surgery1 indicates that the average patient who undergoes this procedure loses 85% of their excess body weight in one year - and keeps the weight off. And because the incisions are minimal, recovery is generally rapid with a minimum of discomfort.
In laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is made smaller, requiring less food to feel full. Patients are usually up and about shortly after surgery and discharged home in a few days.
"Weight loss surgery is a decision you should not make lightly," says Carnie. "But if you have suffered like I have, the pain, humiliation, prejudice, and despair of morbid obesity, you owe it to yourself to investigate this lifesaving option."
"Whatever you decide, I wish you the best. But take it from me, obesity does not have to be a life sentence."
"In the Summer of 1999 I made a decision that changed my life forever. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best. But take it from me, obesity does not have to be a life sentence."
~ Carnie Wilson
