Yvonne H Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty - Yvonne's Story

"I feel fabulous now. I feel like I just went back 20 years. I've lost 60 pounds, my joints feel better. I feel like I can be the best version of myself now."

Through her entire adult life, Yvonne Hernandez has struggled with her weight. She had tried a variety of diets prior to turning to Michel Kahaleh, MD, Chief of Endoscopy at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. Dr. Kahaleh recommended the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty – a type of weight loss procedure that is performed endoscopically – eliminating the need for external incisions.

Yvonne has lost sixty pounds since having the procedure, and her high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and joint pain have disappeared as well.
