Patient Testimonials



Stephanie, 31 year old, had gastric bypass surgery at Buffalo General Medical Center in 2017 and lost 203 lbs.! She went from a size 26-28 pant, down to a size 8. Here's her story, "I started my journey in January when I was at my heaviest weight of 353.8 lbs. During my pre-op months I saw Dr. Butsch, the staff at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery and a nutritionist to get me prepared to have this life-changing surgery. Everyone took their time during my visits to answer and explain any questions I had. I never wanted to go out or leave the house because of the way I looked and felt. It took a toll on my kids, husband and my emotional state. Since having my surgery I feel that the Center for Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery gave me a second chance at life.



I'm more active with my kids, playing outside, running, taking them to the park and pool and just being involved in activities with them. I can cross my legs and wear my wedding ring now, which I have not been able to wear in years. Just going out in public is more enjoyable now It's amazing how much your weight controls your life and holds you back and now I'm in control of my life!"
