Bariatric Surgery Patient Success Stories

The patients shown below all underwent weight loss surgery at the Berkshire Center for Weight Loss Surgery. Several months later—and many pounds lighter—they all began new lives as healthier, happier people.

Each was successful because they took full advantage of every tool our comprehensive bariatric program offered. Through our informational seminars, program guide and online resources, these patients learned as much about the procedure as possible prior to surgery. By attending our Life Skills Workshop, they learned how to deal with food in a new way, and how to cope with stress when food can no longer be used as comfort. By meeting with a dedicated dietitian or nutritionist, they learned their new dietary requirements and how to eat for better health and wellness.

Now, when they look to the future, they see what had been missing for years: joy, optimism and hope.

Please click the images below to share in their stories—and remember: you, too, can have life-changing success.

Start with a free informational seminar, hosted by our board-certified surgeon, Andrew Lederman, MD, FACS, FASMBS, and Jodi Szczepaniak, Bariatric Nurse Practitioner, and open to the Pittsfield, Albany and surrounding communities we love to serve. He’ll walk through weight management and surgical solutions, and see if a bariatric procedure may be right for you.
