No Public Goals Yet.
David Tichansky, M.D.
I've been a patient of Dr. T's for a little over a year. From the moment I went for my initial consultation I knew that he was the right surgeon for me. I've felt as though he and the nutritionist and nurse practitioner did all they could to reassure me, answer my questions, and prepare me for what would come next. With their help, I've met the goals I set for myself and continue to set and achieve new ones. I would definitely recommend that patients considering surgery in the Philadelphia area meet with Dr. Tichansky and his team.

My story. Hmm. Well, that's a tough one. Here's what I know. There really hasn't ever been a time that I haven't been worried about my weight. It's basically always been an issue. I look back to pictures of myself in first and second grade and see a normal 5 & 6 year old girl. Suddenly, I look at my third grade pictures and I was noticeably chubby. And so it began. I think my weight has been a barrier. Something that, in some ridiculous way, I have convinced myself protects me. While on the one hand, it can attract ridicule and scorn, it also comforts me. Food never fails and it always protects. Or so I have made myself believe.
So now, after finishing college and law school I find myself a 29 year-old woman with a BMI of 58. It's time to turn things around. I have a wonderfully supportive immediate family. They're all in this with me. I'm just about finished with all of the pre-operative testing and hope that soon, I'll have possession of this physical tool that will help me change my life.
