Angela Duran was concerned that her current BMI and her family history of obesity-related health problems would lead to future health issues of her own. As a result, she decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery in the hopes of reducing her BMI to a healthy level.
In this video, Dr. Keith Boone of the Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital walks the viewer through Angela's laparoscopic gastric bypass procedure in great detail. The surgery lasts about one hour and Angela is able to go home that day. Seven weeks later, Angela had lost 27 pounds and was back at the gym doing her exercise routine.
