Meet Dafna

Before and after photos of bariatric surgery patient, Dafna

Dafna had roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Pullatt on June 14, 2019.  Prior to having surgery, Dafna weight 255 lbs.  She was on insulin for Type II Diabetes and needed knee replacement surgery (but was advised that she would have to lose over 50 pounds before having her knees replaced).  Today, Dafna weighs 143 lbs, is no longer taking insulin (and has greatly reduced intake of other medications) and had her left knee replaced this past summer.  She is more active than she has been in many years and has a totally new relationship with food, stating that she feels like a “new person” and is “eating to live, no longer living to eat”.  Congratulations to Dafna and her weight loss success with the MUSC Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program!
