“I struggled with my weight for about four years. I tried everything you could think of the gym, dieting, detoxing, intermittent fasting, but the scale wasn’t moving fast enough for me and I became discouraged. I was unhappy with the person I saw in the mirror, hiding behind my clothes and just lost confidence because I no longer felt like myself.

"Last January I had surgery at Surgical Weight Control Center with the amazing Dr. Darren Soong. The staff at this practice was and is still amazing! Charlotte, who was my patient advocate, texted me almost daily to speed up the process & she made everything go so smoothly for me. I appreciate her and my dietitian Michelle Mallory so much. Michelle assisted me with reaching my goals and I still hear her voice in my head daily.

"My starting weight was 222 pounds and I’m down to 145! Thank you will never be enough for what Surgical Weight Control has done for my life. I am so much happier and healthier now!"

Talk about a ! We’re so thankful for the kind sentiments that Jasmine shared with us and are even happier we could play a role in reshaping her tomorrow!

Meet Princess Delmundo! After working in the medical field in Hawaii for six years, Princess moved to Las Vegas near the end of 2021. After working in the billing office, she transferred to GI processing incoming and outgoing referrals for the Gastroenterologist and General Surgeon. Always eager to learn more and lend a helping hand, Princess trained in various positions which included front desk, check out, and medical records.

Last year, Princess became a patient of ours and completed her surgery three months ago! After learning that a central scheduling position had opened, Princess transferred to our team. After experiencing how easy it was to schedule weight-loss surgery, Princess is ecstatic to help our patients have the same experience!

The term heart failure may conjure up fear because it sounds like the heart is not working at all. But having the condition doesn't mean your heart no longer works – it means it's not working as well as it should.

If you have any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor because diagnosis and treatment are the best way to manage heart failure: http://spklr.io/6183W9iV.

"I have struggled with my weight most of my life. I've yo-yo'd up and down the scale and believe me, I have tried just about every diet under the sun. I have thought about weight loss surgery for 20 years, but something always seemed to get in the way. Two and a half years ago, my son died, and my weight skyrocketed to 316lbs. This, 'before picture', is me 2 months before surgery. I had broken my ankle and was wheelchair-bound for almost 5 months. Things had just mounted up on me over and over. I knew I needed help.

"The Surgical Weight Control Center (Dr. Soong and all the nurses and dieticians) literally gave me a new lease on life! They were always there for me and truly showed how much they cared when I was unable to come in for my last two classes due to my ankle so they did the classes by phone so I wouldn't have to start over. Yesterday was my 2-month mark and I have already lost 42 lbs! That's 7 points off my BMI score!! It's happening and I am so thankful!"

We love hearing from our patients and are so happy we could play a role in helping Kim reshape her life! Job well done Kim and keep up the great work!

Introducing Rosalie! She went into education shortly after graduating from college where she found a love of teaching and clinical coordination which landed her here at SWCC. A bariatric patient herself, Rosalie had the gastric sleeve and lost 150lbs. Having been on both ends of the surgical journey has given her valuable insight into the life of a bariatric patient both pre-operatively and post-operatively. We think it adds to our patients' experience because she can relate on a different level than most.

Outside of work, Rosalie can often be found sharing her intense passion for playing and coaching volleyball. She also loves the beach and everything Halloween. We're so glad she's a part of our team!

Inflammation can be a good thing. Your immune system sends out inflammatory cells when it detects bacteria, viruses or toxins to help protect you from illness. If you are injured, this same inflammatory response jumpstarts the healing process. But too much of a good thing is not so good.

"My name is Shannon Clanton. I had the sleeve surgery last May; it took me three years too long to decide to do the surgery. I was feeling scared and so unhealthy, yet I knew I had to do this for the sake of my health.

"I weighed 289 lbs, had sleep apnea, was pre-diabetic, and took 5 different medications for various health conditions. I remember feeling out of breath when walking down my driveway. Waking up each morning it would several minutes to get out of bed. I was dealing with a sore body, sore feet, always uncomfortable, low self-esteem, and depression.

"I feel that this surgery saved my life! I lost 70 lbs total in one year. I am currently off all medications and I'm no longer dealing with sleep apnea. I am a new person! I feel beautiful inside and out. Healthy and strong!

I am so grateful for the support of the staff including the dietitians and surgeons who are the best in Las Vegas. Thank you Surgical Weight Control Center for the new and improved second chance at a healthier life."

We love hearing from our patients and are so happy we could play a role in helping Shannon reshape her life! Job well done Shannon and keep up the great work!
