When Mike Petroff stopped playing football after college he continued eating like an athlete. As the years passed, his weight continued to increase, leading to high blood pressure, sleep apnea, diabetes and high cholesterol. Eventually, he reached the point where he was tired of being the biggest person in the room.
Mike attended a weight loss surgery seminar at Summa. The emphasis on follow-up and a motivated support group convinced him that weight loss surgery could help him regain his quality of life.
Today, Mike’s life is drastically different – and improved. He has lost 250 pounds and is able to ride a bike and go on walks without tiring. He has resumed playing golf after more than 25 years away from the game. He has more energy than ever before.
As Mike discovered, there is an alternative for people whose excess weight is causing potentially life-threatening medical conditions and affecting their quality of life.
