Weight Loss Surgery - Christina's Story
How did Christina lose 230 pounds in less than a year?
Christina struggled with her weight her entire life. She reached a point when she knew she had to make a drastic, and life-saving change: weight loss surgery. With the help and guidance of surgeon Dr. Corrigan McBride at The Nebraska Medical Center, Christina has seen her weight drop significantly along with many of the other health problems that used to trouble her.
The surgery she had is called a sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve surgery works by removing the majority of the patient's stomach. Not only does this limit what a person is able to eat, but it removes the part of the stomach that makes a person hungry.
The bariatric surgery program at The Nebraska Medical Center has been named a national Center of Excellence by the an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
