Bariatric Surgery Success Stories *Meet several of Dr. Patel’s patients and hear what they have to say about their lives before and after bariatric surgery, as well as their experience with Dr. Patel.
Robyn Shaw, Corpus Christi, TX
In 3rd grade, Robyn Shaw was diagnosed with a Hiatal Hernia that gave her terrible heartburn and was prescribed medications for years to ease the pain. Now, a year after a successful Bariatric Surgery, Robyn no longer needs to take any heartburn medication and she has overcome social anxiety from being overweight.
Lona Helge, San Antonio TX
After years of bullying, Lona Helge had trouble overcoming the social anxiety she’d developed in order to find herself a secure job, but the dedication to her son and his future was all the encouragement she needed to keep pushing forward.
Benito Ramon, Sonora, TX
Benito was constantly told when he’d fall asleep he’d sometimes stop breathing for up to 20 seconds at a time and he found it was from severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Now, after his Bariatric Surgery, Benito has no Sleep Apnea symptoms and he sleeps like a rock!
David Cruz, San Antonio TX
David Cruz’s persistence in becoming a healthier version of himself paid off when he no longer had to be on medication for diabetes or high blood pressure, as a result of his decision to get Gastric Bypass Surgery with Dr. Nilesh Patel.
Heather Durand – Del Rio
Heather Durand’s habit of drinking two Route-44 Dr. Pepper’s a day didn’t help her with her weight or frequent migraines. Now, nearly a year after bariatric surgery, she no longer craves Dr. Pepper and her migraines have all but disappeared!
Ima Bruce: Eldorado, TX
Only a year after her successful Gastric Bypass Procedure, Ima Bruce lost over 120 pounds and became an inspiration to her town.

Melissa Brewer struggled with late-night binge eating, increasing health risks, and an initial procedure through another surgeon gone wrong; but after her Sleeve Revision surgery performed by Dr. Nilesh Patel, Melissa is now enjoying life pain and guilt-free!
Martha Morgan, San Antonio, TX
Less than one year after Marti Morgan’s Lap Band Procedure, she has completed a 5k, lost 68 lbs, and no longer has high cholesterol, sleep apnea, or early onset diabetes!
Stacy Ashton, Killeen TX
Stacy Ashton was unable to portray the “real her”, as her weight inhibited activity and exasperated allergy complications; but today, she is complication-free living life as the active Mom she always hoped to be.
Greg Martinez, Kerrville, TX
Just nine months after Greg Martinez’s gastric bypass procedure, he has lost over 130 pounds, stopped his cycle of alcohol and painkillers and feels “excellent”!
