Weight Loss Surgery Success Stories

Gastric Sleeve

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart from the new Zuleica!"

In December of 2010 I suffered a heart attack due to obesity. I was lucky to arrive at the hospital in time where they performed an emergency procedure to save my life.  I was overweight, had heart disease, diabetes and sleep apnea. I tried different diets with various nutritionist and my cardiologist, however, nothing worked.


My cardiologist warned me that if I didn’t lose weight, I may have another heart attack. I was 227 pounds. The cardiologist suggested I meet with folks at Eviva. After consulting with the Eviva staff and doctors, I prepared and  underwent surgery on June 26, 2018.  The surgery has surpassed my expectations, I lost a total of 92 lbs, I have reversed my heart disease and diabetes and my sleeping disorder have improved. I am no longer on medication for heart disease or diabetes. I feel 20 years younger than my age, and I have a lot of more energy.

Thank you to Dr. Robert Landerholm and the entire Eviva staff for their support in this process. Thank you from the bottom of my heart from the new Zuleica!
