William R., Pre OpWilliam R., Post Op"My dreams for a better life started with the staff of the Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

Although my case was anything but normal (I also had a tumor on my adrenal gland that was pressing up against my spleen), I decided to have both the adrenalectomy and gastric bypass surgeries at the same time.

I can not say enough about Dr. Eva Fischer, Nancy Restuccia and Lorraine Olivero. They have helped me every step of the way. I've lost 125 pounds so far, and I am ready to start a new chapter in my life. My thanks and love to them all."
