I have an employee who is 400+ pounds that has back problems that are getting worse. She consulted with a Dr. in VA who is in solo practice who said he wouldn't touch her till she weighed around 250. Well if she could do that, she wouldn't need WLS!!
Anyway, with her back and decreased mobility, her weight continues to creep up. I know ECU is a Center for Excellence for Bariatric surgery, and wondered if anyone had personal experience with them or could suggest a Dr. from there.
My doc trained there even though he is not practicing there, and I have been very pleased and impressed with his skills and program.
Our insurance here would be no problem and other than high blood pressure, she is in good health and I think would be an excellent candidate. Since she asked and is interested, I said I would see what I could find out.
Can anyone please help?
Thanks in advance,
