I am really very happy with the speed of having my surgery, I did not have to wait 10+ years. Obesity is not a life choice. When you have exhausted all other forms of diets and help programs, having the option for surgery should be available to all Canadians across the country. I am very thankful for finding the SmartShape surgeon and being allowed to have my surgery, the mini-gastric bypass. He saved my life. Thank you!
