before and after

"I get very emotional when I reflect on what this surgery has done for my life. Due to weight-related health problems, I wasn’t able to be as active as I wanted to be as a mother. My son, Kaden, means the world to me and I wanted him to have the mother he deserved. That was my ultimate decision-maker to proceed with surgery.

Since my surgery, I am now free of hypertension, migraines and sleep apnea! My son and I get to enjoy playing soccer together, go hiking, and just have fun!


If your weight is negatively impacting your health and limiting your mobility, bariatric surgery might be right for you. Bariatric (weight loss) surgery can result in a considerable amount of weight loss over a short period of time.

St. Claire offers vertical sleeve gastrectomy, commonly referred to as gastric sleeve, a minimally invasive surgical weight loss solution. Not only will you look better, but you'll feel better as you will dramatically reduce your risk of obesity-related health issues, like diabetes, heart and lung problems, stroke, sleep apnea, joint disease, and more.

We invite you to join us for a free weight loss seminar to meet St. Claire's amazing team and see if surgical weight loss is right for you.

“Having weight loss surgery was one of the best decisions I’ve made! In only 3 months, I’ve lost 115 pounds and I have never felt better. Thanks to St. Claire, Dr. Lynch, and his team, I’m able to enjoy many of my favorite hobbies again, including hiking. And, I’m only getting started. I’m on my way to losing another 100 pounds!”
