As a Canadian healthcare executive, I researched bariatric surgery extensively. OCC and Dr. Ortiz’s team have the experience and qualifications to give you the best possible outcome. From pre-op to post-op the continuum of of care continues, now 5 years later…

I struggled with my weight, starting in my early adulthood. Coupled with having children, quitting smoking, hysterectomy, high stress sedentary job….I found myself gaining weight over time. Until one day, I was diagnosed borderline diabetic and suffering problems with my joints related to obesity. I knew better. Obesity is the #1 cause of of many health related issues and I was no exception to this. I decided no more as I tried many times to shed the weight and just couldn’t. I needed help and my health depended on it. This was the best decision of my life. I’m fit, active and most importantly healthy. I eat whole foods and have never felt better. I can still enjoy treats, just not everyday. I believe by looking after me and entrusting OCC, I have gained extra years to live a life I will thoroughly enjoy!
