Team Approach Matters, What a Weight Loss Surgery Patient Says about Dr. Nick Nicholson
A Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery patient talks about the importance of support.
Dallas, TX, Dec. 17, 2016 – The journey to lose weight begins with the very first step, but the road ahead can be difficult for people to navigate on their own. That is especially so when obesity is a serious health concern and the overall goal seems unattainable. A team approach that includes support every step of the way can make all the difference, says Kelly, a Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery patient.
When Kelly first walked through the clinic’s doors, she was struggling with the realization that her weight affected not only her, but also her family.
“It wasn’t until I took my kids to an amusement park that I realized it wasn’t just about me,” she says. When Kelly’s size prevented her from getting on a ride, the look on her daughter’s face motivated her to take action.
“Meeting Dr. Nick (Nicholson) was wonderful,” says Kelly. “He was nonjudgmental. He really seemed to genuinely care about the patients he takes care of.”
“After working with Kelly to ascertain her goals and explore her options, she decided a gastric bypass was the right procedure for her,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery. “By taking advantage of counseling and support offered at the clinic, Kelly was well prepared for the surgery and the changes in her life that would come afterwards.”
It was the level of support provided by Dr. Nicholson and the entire staff at the clinic that surprised Kelly the most. She has friends and family who have also undergone bariatric surgery, but they walked alone without advance support, counseling and education. There was also “no follow up,” says Kelly. “That’s not the experience I wanted and that was not the way with Nicholson.”
After losing 145 pounds following her bypass, Kelly proudly reports her kids tire out faster at amusement parks than she does. “If I can do this, anybody can do this. This is a new life.”
