Meet Kandice

Kandice was tired of not feeling well. Her weight had fluctuated for years. She tried diet, exercise — what felt like everything — and nothing was working. She knew it was time for a change. She wanted something more permanent. 

"I wanted to live a healthier life. I wanted to stick around." 

Her primary care physician suggested she might be a good candidate for weight loss surgery and referred her to Summa Health. 

"Weight loss isn't just for extreme cases. It's for people just like me, who just needed that extra push.”

For her weight loss surgery, Summa Health put a team around her, walking her through every step of the process. Dr. Mark Pozsgay was her surgeon. She also worked with a dietitian, nutritionist and nurse practitioner — all of them worked to keep her on track. 

"They were very kind, very caring. Any time I had questions about anything, they would listen. My team at Summa is absolutely amazing. I don't think I could have done this on my own." 

Kandice has realized: Weight loss is a total team sport. Even her son at home was an ally.  

These days, Kandice feels amazing. 

"I feel so much lighter. Not as winded as I used to be doing simple things. Running on the treadmill is so much easier. You don't know how bad you feel until you don't feel bad anymore.”  

After the weight loss surgery, Kandice got invited to a family wedding. When she showed up to the wedding, none of her family recognized her. 

She knew the change she was looking for had finally arrived.
