    I 'm a believer in science. I researched the science and read the scientific literature and this is what I believe about the DS:

    It has the best statistics for percent of excess weight loss.

    It has the best statistics for maintenance of weight loss over time.

    It has the best statistics for curing type 2 diabetes.

    All surgeries are not created equal. The DS is the "strongest" surgery available. I am a light weight with less than 100 lbs to loose. But for people with a high BMI the DS is an even better choice.

    For complete information about the DS including links to the research you can go to DSFacts.com.

    You really only have one chance to do this. You need to take the time and make the best decision you can make.

    Pick you surgery type first THEN pick your surgeon.

    Hope this helps

    This is why I chose the DS too! If there had been something else more drastic, I would have gone for it!
