"Diabetes and heart disease run in my family, and I was headed down that path. Several co-workers went the more severe gastric bypass route for their weight loss, but did not seem very happy. Surprisingly, as I started researching the Lap Band surgery, I found that my boss was doing the same. Between the two of us we saw several doctors and we chose Dr Ponce. His pre and post op consulting and involvement is amazing- even after two years. We chose the Lap Band procedure for it’s quick recovery time and its adaptability as our lifestyle changes improved. My boss and I have both lost almost 100 pounds and kept it off. There are many friends and family who have become patients of Southwest Surgical and are getting their life back again as well"

"I’m grateful for medical technology and especially grateful to Dr. Ponce de Leon, as I have my life back! Admittedly, my eating habits were poor, as was my exercise ethic. Now I’m held accountable to eat healthier and maintain an exercise program, of which has resulted in a much better outlook ~ both physically and emotionally. I’ve been through yesterday, I’m working on today, and I’m excited about tomorrow!"
