Weight Loss Surgery Testimonial: Patient Maggie Crater

Maggie Crater, a successful weight loss surgery patient, is a stay-at-home mom who's been overweight her entire adult life. After her youngest child was born, she developed health problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma and pre-diabetes.

"I started to fear that I would not live long enough to see my children graduate from high school, and I told my husband that I can't live like this anymore," she said.

Maggie was referred to Dr. Adolfo ("Fuzz") Fernandez and was "sold on weight loss surgery from the beginning." She had the gastric bypass Roux-en-Y procedure at Wake Forest Baptist Health and lost 158 pounds after two years.

Maggie loved how Amber Norris, the weight-loss program's dietitian, worked with her through each phase of the program so that she wasn't overwhelmed. She would "do it all over again without hesitation."

Maggie’s is only one of many weight loss surgery testimonials that tell of successful weight management courtesy of Wake Forest Baptist Health, Winston-Salem, NC.
