Valerie H's Story

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen

“I had an open gastric bypass on 7/22/03 with Dr. Glantz at UCLA (through Kaiser). I lost 210 pounds in approximately 20 months. After spending the majority of my life as an obese person my skin was severely stretched and weakened. After doing a great deal of research I decided that Dr. Katzen would be the best surgeon to perform my reconstructive surgeries. I met with him several times and together we mapped out a plan. Over the course of three surgeries he was able to remove the excess tissue and sagging skin that was plaguing me. Throughout it all he was kind and compassionate and always listened to my concerns with great empathy. Anytime anyone asks about my procedures I recommend Dr. Katzen whole-heartedly and without reservation. Should I ever decide to have additional procedures in the future I will definitely return to him; he is the best!”
