I had decided a few years ago that I wanted to have the roux en y but while waiting for the doctors to get my underactive thyroid taken care of I read an article by Dr. Timothy Sifers about the bpd and why he thinks it is much better. I made an
Surgeon: Timothy M. Sifers, M.D.
appointment with him in February of 2003 and had the surgery May 2 of 2003. I am now a little over 2 years post op and so so happy I decided on the BPD. I have lost a total of 125 pounds and feel great. I have about 30 more I would like to lose but I'm not so concerned with them.. I believe my life finally began the day I had my surgery. I adore Dr. Sifers and will never be able to convey my gratitude to him for giving me my life back. Sadly March 15 of 2005 Dr. Sifers unexpectedly
passed away. He was a great person and a wonderful surgeon. He will be greatly missed.
I met with Dr. Sifers in January of 2003 and after just a few short minutes with him
I knew he was the one I wanted to have do my surgery. He was so understanding and
very personable. I liked him instantly and
trusted him. The more I saw him the more
I liked him. He explained the procedure and
the possible complications and also his reasoning for believing the bpd was the best bariatric surgery. Surgery went well and I am so grateful to Dr. Sifers for giving me my life back.

United Health Care has been very easy
to deal with. I didnt have to be
persistent at all. Took about 2 weeks
to get approval. They have been very
helpful in the whole process.
