I had no problems after surgery. I have lost over 100lbs and continue to lose weight. I am very happy that I went to Johns Hopkins for my surgery and had Dr. Schweitzer as my surgeon.

He took the time to go through each operation and helped me to understand which operation would help me the most. He was very professional and I felt comfortable in the choice I made after leaving the office.
