    I had been dieting for years and and my body was not reacting positively. I was not losing any weight, this is when they recommended me to go and see Dr. Rumbaut. It didn´t take long for me to decide to have surgery.  And tothis day, this has been the best decision I have ever made. The change has been from the inside out. This has been a life changing experience I now know more  things about myself and I am healthier and happier!...*

    Lost 121 lbs. I decided to get the lap band procedure because I had a real problem due to my obesity. I suffered from hypertension due to stress, work and obesity. I was referred with Dr. Rumbaut by several Doctor friends. And everything turned out excellent. Dr. Rumbaut offered great care and my postoperative evolution was wonderful without any complication. If you are considering surgery, I suggest you do everything to make it happen. Our health is the most precious thing we have. I recommend that you look for a Surgeon...*

    This is a story I never tire of telling. The positive changes that have taken place in my life are almost too numerous to mention. Many of these changes I have experienced are private and personal; much of it I can share, but perhaps not in print! ;o) The year before I was banded (1999) my weight was at an all time high. I was miserable and quite frankly, I had given up. I had tried everything and I was tired of...*

    My name is Cassie and I have always been overweight. I guess the first time I realized I had a problem was after graduating high school at 16 years old and weighed 175 lbs while all my friends weighed about 115 lbs. My weight didn’t stop there, over the next few years I put on another 25 lbs to bring me to an even 200 lbs. I have been on numerous diets and took countless diet pills over the years to...*

  • Lisa

    Before weight loss surgery I had low self esteem, depression, constant back, and foot pain, and chronic heartburn. I felt like my weight problem was destroying my life. I knew I had to do something. Ten months after surgery I lost 90 pounds. A year and a half later I am still at the same weight. My self esteem is no longer a problem, the foot pain is gone, no more heartburn, and I now know that I am in charge...*

Even though I was exercising and dieting, my health conditions were not improving and I was...*
