Patient Story

Weight Loss Surgery: Patient Story

Jordan Kalm

Like many people, my weight had been a veritable roller coaster. I had tried many “fad diets” through the years, as well as a medical weight loss program. However, after gaining all of the weight back that I had lost, I decided I needed another tool to help me be successful. This came in the form of sleeve gastrectomy surgery in December of 2014.

It was one of the best decisions of my life; a decision I would make 10 out of 10 times.

There are two specific features that I appreciate most about St. Luke’s Surgical Weight Loss Program: the exceptional team approach to care, and the lifestyle changes that I was taught wholly prepared me to be successful.

I was able to achieve – and maintain – my goals: to be confident in myself physically, to be able to keep up with my children, and to extend my joy in life beyond food.

The whole experience was positive. The team members (dietitians, psychologists, physician assistants, surgeons) understand the struggles that come with weight loss. They actively worked with me towards success, from pre-surgery care to post-surgery follow up.
