After years of dieting with no success, I decided to look into Saratoga Bariatric Surgery.  I signed up for an informational seminar and was very impressed.  As is normal for all patients I had a thorough screening process. I was approved for gastric bypass.   The surgery went well and the after care in the hospital was phenomenal.  Dr. Baranov and the hospital staff took care of me in a way that other doctors and hospitals need to learn.  They were on top of everything.  
In the weeks following surgery I spoke with Dr. Baranov or his staff daily ( including weekends).  Any question I had was answered.  The staff is knowledgeable and professional.  It is now three months since my surgery and I have lost 82 pounds. I have gone from 256 pounds to 174 pounds, from size 44 pants to size 34.   I no longer wear an insulin pump for diabetes, my blood pressure is great, my neuropathy in my feet has gone and my knees and back no longer hurt.  The whole process has been exciting to go through. 
I understand this is a lifelong commitment and to help me with it I go to the support group meetings monthly.  Dr. Baranov, his staff and Saratoga Hospital are amazing.  If you are thinking about this type of surgery contact them.  You wont regret it!
