Sara's Story

Sara battled with her weight for a long time. Diets never lasted. And because she was over 300 lbs., exercise wasn’t an option. Her health was suffering, and so was her happiness.

Sara needed more than a permanent solution. She needed all-around support. And that’s exactly what she found. As Sara tells it, “When I met the doctor, he said, ‘We need to change your lifestyle.’ I needed to hear that.”

Sara lost 174 pounds, but she didn’t do it alone. The weight management team at St. Vincent Healthcare offers surgical and non-surgical weight management programs, comprehensive tools and other resources, that empower patients to meet their weight loss goals and achieve lasting results.

* Results may vary from patient to patient. These results were achieved by adhering to a medically supervised diet and regular exercise program in addition to the procedure noted.
