Surgery performed: Sleeve Gastrectomy

Michael Cullen

Surgery performed: Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

"I have known Dr. Howard and his family (parents and siblings) since I moved to Texas in 1988. There was no doubt I would use him as my surgeon. Dr. Howard performed a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) on September 22, 2014. While this procedure is not a cure all for obesity, it is a fantastic tool if you want to bring your weight down at a steady and fairly rapid pace. When following the program set out by Dr. Howard I consistently lost about five pounds per week. After having this surgery, I feel much better and participate in a lot more physical activity than I did prior to the surgery.  I have eliminated all prescriptions except for one mild blood pressure drug."
