VSG on 10/17/16


I'm new to this forum.

15 years ago, I went through all the preliminary testing, hoping to have VSG.

After all that work and time I was turned down, because the procedure was considered experimental.

Needless to say, I was discouraged and gave up on the idea.

Now, I see that VSG, is being covered by insurance companies.

I'm starting back at square one.

Has anyone had Dr. Giovanni and her team, at Kent Hospital.

Has anyone had any R.I. surgeons, pertheSE.

How was your outcome?

Hi the RI board is very quiet. I think Dr G. Used to be with my doc Dr Roye at RIH/Miriam hosp. Heard only good things about her. Good luck with you're journey. I had a Lap band in 2007 out 2013 couldn't do bypass when band came out, too much damage--trying again now.
