FLINT, Mich., March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The
Aeschliman family of Midland, Michigan have a new lease on life.
Nancy Aeschliman Grau and her three children—Katie, Chris,
and Mike ALL underwent Roux-en-Y bariatric surgery at Hurley
Medical Center—the first facility in Genesee County to offer
this life-changing surgery. The surgeries were performed by Kurt
Kralovich, MD, and the results are amazing. The family has lost 445
pounds, and counting.
“At Hurley, we provide the most comprehensive clinical care with
an individualized approach for all bariatric patients. We work
closely with each patient to provide the best treatment options for
successful weight loss, and provide the support these patients and
their families need, every step of the way. For the Aeschliman
family, the surgery has been life-changing and altering in so many
ways. I’m so glad to see the success this family’s had in
reclaiming their health, and their lives,” adds Kurt Kralovich, MD,
FACS, Hurley Bariatric Surgeon.
Nancy says, “Before surgery, I had lost over 100 pounds on fad
diets, but they never worked. I would lose the weight, only to
regain everything, and then some. I felt like I was this thin
person living in a heavy person’s body. I suffered from back and
knee pain, and high blood pressure, and my life was truly passing
me by. I had the surgery in March, 2009, and have successfully
reached my weight loss goal: 160 pounds. And, I’ve never looked
Katie Aeschliman, 23, had the surgery in May, 2010.
“I have lost 110 pounds, and the surgery has completely
changed my life. Today, I am dating, am the President of my
sorority, and can’t wait to buy clothes. I am a new
person, and it’s all because I took the step to have this
surgery at Hurley.”
