before and after photo of weight loss surgery patient Shawn JamesTwo years ago, Shawn James had weight loss surgery with Rana Pullatt. Six months ago, he shared photos with the MUSC family to demonstrate his success.

"Two years ago, I made a decision that has changed my life for the better. I can’t thank the MUSC Bariatric Program enough. You guys are awesome! The only regret I have is not doing it sooner. One hundred pounds gone forever!" Shawn said.

UPDATE:This summer, Shawn visited Lake Jocassee. The bottom photo is Shawn performing a back dive off a cliff into the lake! This is what he had to say about that jump: “One hundred pounds ago, I would’ve stayed in the boat.  Enjoying life to its fullest! Thanks again, Dr. Pullatt and the entire staff at MUSC.”
