Dr. Drahota did my surgery on Tuesday and I couldn't have been happier. The Medical Weightloss Surgery Center is where he does the surgery. I loved everyone of my nurses and everyone that was there. They were so helpful to me even when I was nervous they sat with me and told me as much info as they could about what I was going to go through, step by step. After surgery I even had my own post op nurse that didn't leave my side. I was so comfortable that I hated going home!! :)

My surgeon is Dr. Nicole Fearing who is with Malley Surgical. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Fearing is great to work with. I'm harder on myself than anyone can be and she will sit and talk as long as you need to during a routine fill appointment. I never feel rushed during these appointments.

Something else to keep in mind is where the surgery is done, and Malley Surgical does their band procedures at New Hope Bariatrics (435/Nall). My outpatient stay there was the best I have experienced next to the Birth Place at Olathe Med. The surgical center is geared towards bariatric patients. It's a calming, warm and great environment. I loved the nurse I had there.

Good luck! Looks like we have a lot of KC support going on here.

I had my surgery done by Dr. Malley. He was awesome. He kind of reminds me of a dirty hippie for some reason, lol. But him and his staff were so amazing. I went in at 830am and left 240pm the same day, but I hear they are requiring an overnight stay now. Everything about this journey with them has been amazing. The only thing I would change is I really haven't seen Dr Malley much since my surgery.

Dr. Malley! Once I met him, I was at ease. The staff at New Hope Bariatric is awesome, and Karen in his office (she does the fills!) is very supportive and will guide you through the process. Good luck on your journey!
