Procedure: LapBand
Weight lost: 140 pounds

About three years ago I weighed over 325 pounds and suffered from uncontrollable sleep apnea. I also had high blood pressure and borderline diabetes. After the doctors told me that I could no longer live at altitude and should move back to sea level I decided to make a complete life change.

After starting with the gastric LapBand, I changed my entire nutrition and fitness lifestyle and today have lost over 140 pounds! I no longer suffer from any medical conditions and feel the best I have ever felt. I have completed multiple half and full marathons as well as three half-Ironman 70.3 events and my first full Ironman 140.6.

I embrace a healthy and happy lifestyle and hope I can inspire and motivate others to take control of their lives and get healthy!

Please view this testimonial from Rich Kalasky, a patient of Dr. Michael Snyder with Denver Center for Bariatric Surgery at Rose Medical Center.
