On 6/10/2011 I had the VSG done by Dr Anne Lidor at the John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Dr. Lidor is a competent surgeon with a lot of energy. She talk fast and moves swiftly.
I came to the center with a lot of information at hand and I let her know that upfront. I think because of this I did not get a ton of information from her but she informed me about risks and expectations.
This center does have a strong focus on the RNY and if you are getting sleeved I would advise you to research on here, online, read,read,read. This center does a 40f bougie sleeve size so if you want a smaller sleeve look elsewhere. There are fewer complications with the 40 vs the 32 but I have heard that the mature 40 sleeve holds a bit more food than the 32. That may make a difference in maintenance. For me it will not matter as I know I have to exercise and eat measured amounts.
My biggest complaint is that I had to literally ride the damn office staff for my info to get submitted, approved and getting my date.etc. That was a real pain. I never got a call from the finance lady, I worked closely with the coordinator and got things done.
The hospital stay was 2 nights. Some nurses were better than others (the 3rd shift ones) The day nurses ..smh -no comment. I came out alive so I won't complain.
