What do you do when diets don’t work?

This was the case for Kylee Coleman. Before visiting the SCL Health Saint Joseph Weight Loss Center, Kylee tried every diet she could find without success. “I had dieted my way to my highest weight,” she said. “It was a vicious cycle of failure.”

John Raheb, DO and Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery, had seen struggles like Kylee’s. Together, they created a plan that targeted her weight loss goals and scheduled a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. After the procedure and diligent plan, Kylee is over 100 pounds lighter.

Dr. Raheb’s patients often remark on not realizing their misery until after they shed the weight. After working with Dr. Raheb, Kylee was thrilled to shed her weight and regain her health. She can now focus on enjoying that health and growing old with her family.
