"I've never felt better."
Julie Schurbon knew it was time to make an important change. After years of struggling to lose weight, Schurbon shared her health concerns with her primary care physician who recommended bariatric surgery through UnityPoint Health® - Trinity's Weight Management Center.
"I weighed more than 270 pounds. Now I'm down to 175," says Schurbon. "I feel really good. I have so much more energy and stamina."
Before her surgery, Schurbon says Dr. James Schrier and her care team walked her step-by-step through the process and encouraged her to attend support group meetings. Schurbon says the personal attention she's received at UnityPoint Health has been second to none, and she's feeling better than she has in years.
"I love that I can travel anywhere and I get to walk and explore," Schurbon says. "I know I can reach out to the weight management team any time for support. They continue to always be there for me."
