My surgeon was absolutely wonderful. When I first saw him speak at information night I introduced myself to him because we have a mutual friend. He was absolutely delightful to chat with. I am on the high end of BMI and age range and it never was an issue with him. He told everyone at the info night that his commitment to us was for as long as he lived! His statistics are excellent and were also thorough. The whole program was beyond thorough. I was taught everything I needed to know and more. Aftercare is also marvelous and so is the staff. They are always available by phone, even on weekends. I live about 60 miles away and they bent over backwards to schedule as much on one day as possible to avoid extra driving. Also Meriter Hospital was the best hospital I have ever been in. I work in medicine and this was a phenomenal experience. they certainly deserve the Center of Excellence rating!

I have been overweight all my life and have done everything everyone else has. I decided to have the lapband surgery when a close friend had it and has done well. Previously I was afraid I was too old (63). I went to Madison to UW and Dr. Garren and have been quite impressed with the whole program. It is a Center of Excellence which made a big difference to my insurance company. I am now three weeks past surgery and have lost 36 lbs. More than that, I have so much more energy! I think the protein really helps.
