Larissa Hersom thought she was making a change for the better when she travelled to Tijuana, Mexico in spring 2010 to undergo weight loss surgery. The result, however, was anything but positive. Hersom suffered serious complications from the surgery, which could have proven fatal if she didn’t find a doctor to intervene. Unemployed and uninsured, Hersom sought in vain for a bariatric surgeon who could help her. Finally, Denton weight loss surgeon Dr. David Provost stepped in and provided the life-saving revision surgery she needed.
Dr. Provost is one of the nation’s leading specialists in weight loss surgery revisions, including the StomaphyX procedure. He says that revisions represent about 45 percent of all the operations he performs.
