Before deciding to have surgery, I was depressed and sick all the time. When I met Dr. Texeira, I found him to be knowledgeable, professional, caring and personable. He answered all of my questions, he asked me follow-up questions and he made me feel safe. On the day of my surgery, I was very scared, but Dr. T came to see me while I was in pre-op and reassured me everything was going to be fine. And it was. My surgery went perfectly. Dr. T performed a gastric sleeve and repaired my hiatal hernia. My hospital stay was fantastic. A year has passed, and I have lost 77 pounds. I feel happy and healthy. I am now able to enjoy life and do things that I couldn’t do before. I feel confident and beautiful!” -- Ana

“I had the duodenal switch surgery with Dr. Teixeira, and I could not be any happier. I have a life again! I started my journey by attending an info session when I weighed 372 pounds. I had my surgery and, as of today, I am 209 pounds (and still losing!). I am so much healthier and wearing clothing sizes I haven't seen since middle school. I'm able to comfortably sit in any chair, go on an airplane without a seatbelt extender, fit in booths at restaurants, ride rollercoasters, tie my own shoes and so much more. I have truly been given a second chance at life and I couldn't be happier.” -- Danielle
