"Surgery changed everything and it feels good." —Hector

I feel like I didn’t have motivation to go out prior to surgery. I had a difficult time tying my shoes. I would go to work but didn’t have energy. I was embarrassed to go out with my kids. My experience at UCLA was amazing. Dr. Chen was so knowledgeable and explained the next steps.

I came to the class, it was very supportive from the staff to the other patients. I felt like I could do this, it was my “go for it” moment. I started losing weight for the surgery. It was exciting. Dr. Chen made me comfortable and like he cared about me. Surgery changed everything and it feels good.
