LAP-BAND Success Stories

Darla Moody

Darla lost 85 pounds and has maintained her weight loss for five years! "I can't even count all the diets and exercise programs I tried before consulting a surgeon. With the LAP-BAND® encouragement from the local bariatric surgery support group, and my strong determination, I lost pounds and inches and gained confidence and the desire to inspire others. Today, I have the energy and physical ability I need to keep up with my kids, I am doing things I once only dreamed of and I consider my surgery a positive, life-changing experience."

Erick Hoffman

Erick lost 90 pounds in one year! "I had always been overweight. I tried different diets and exercise but never saw results. After witnessing the success of a family member that had with the LAP-BAND®, I spent time researching and understanding the impact it could have on my life. After only 24 hours in the hospital, I was back home, ready to begin making the right choices. Now I run and lift weights and simple tasks are not as tasking as they used to be - I have even hiked Harney Peak."
