Teri's Story

Teri would lose her breath on the simplest of hikes. After surgery, they simply take her breath away.
Teri Denetso, Sedona, AZ

Teri’s weight, shortness of breath and asthma kept her from enjoying the activity she and her dog longed for the most — daily hikes in the red rocks near her home. Teri knew walking was good for her and her companion, Sydney, but fighting through the discomfort and exhaustion was often too agonizing. She turned to the experts at the Bariatric Surgical Weight Loss Center at FMC. This team of physicians, nurses, dieticians and therapists collaborated to give Teri a healthier life.

One year later, Teri is 97 pounds lighter, her asthma has disappeared and she greets every morning with a smile, a leash and a spring in her step.
