Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Weight loss: 60 lbs/ 7 mo

“My story is a little different from others. I was fortunate to be born with an athletic body. I have been active my whole life in competitive sports. Turning 50 I even completed a half Ironman Triathalon “without injury.” I was so proud of my accomplishment! Then I began to realize something was wrong, and long story short, I had a parathyroid tumor. Then, hypothyroidism followed…all on top of menopause. I went from a size 8 to a size 18 in one year and within 3 years my once 150 lbs body weighed over 200 lbs. At this time, I made a commitment to start my life over again. I was not going to be one of the statistics. Even though I resigned to not being able to return to being 18 years old and eating whatever I wanted, I was going to fight metabolic disease! The gastric sleeve surgery gave me the jump-start to continue my quest for good health, enjoying exercise, and giving back to others!”

“All I have to say in regards to Dr. Shillingford is THANK YOU! He is simply the BEST and above the rest! I was going into this lifestyle change a bit nervous, but with him and his office manager Nancy…. All was well! From the insurance procedure, to paperwork, to the counseling, and those last minute phone calls because I was so nervous and they were so patient. Nancy is the most sweetest, compassionate, person ever and I truly thank God for them both! If they ever need me to speak at any event… I am just a phone call away!
Thank you once again!”

“I’m very happy with Dr. Shillingford and his office staff, especially the office manager, Nancy. Thank you for being persistent on getting insurance approval, for great patient education pre & post surgery, for continuous support during my weight-loss regimen, and the knowledgeable Dr.’s advice that kept me focused on my goal. I feel as if I’ve been reborn.”
