  • About Me
    A masterful manager and someone who always has a kind word to say to everyone, Melissa oversees all day-to-day operations at Sterling Surgicare and serves as Dr. Adeyeri’s medical associate. She joined Sterling Surgicare in 2012 after earning her Patient Care Associate / Tech (PCA) certification from Brookdale Community College in 2011. Melissa says she enjoys watching patients prepare, undergo and reap the rewards of bariatric surgery. She should know? She underwent gastric bypass in November 2008. At the time, she weighed 299 pounds but today maintains a steady weight of 137 pounds. She lost 162 pounds and, most importantly, has kept the weight off several years later! “One of the best decisions I ever made was having bariatric surgery,” Melissa says. “Now I can support other people who are enjoying the same journey!” During the summer of 2013, Melissa experienced a healthcare emergency when she was diagnosed with a painful bowel obstruction/internal hernia requiring immediate surgery. Who did she choose to perform her surgery? Her boss, Dr. Ayotunde Adeyeri! Melissa’s surgery was a complete success and she says she has not planned for any future surgeries! She is married with three children and helps out with her family’s popular restaurant, Slaters, on weekends.
