Milwaukee Area Vsg Surgeons? Chicago?



Recommended Posts

Hi all-

I know one of my pet peeves on other forums is when people ask questions that they could have easily found by searching - but I came up with no results with Milwaukee and surgeons.

Anyhooo...

I was working with dr Alvarez's patient coordinator when I finally let my husband in on my plan for WLS. He's not crazy about the idea, but would feel much better if I had surgery closer to home (Milwaukee, Chicago or nearish to there).

I am self-pay but luckily $$ is not an issue. I'd rather be heathy than have a new car!

Long story short: I am looking for a VSG surgeon in my general area. Your input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

L

I am going with Mahed Jandali in Kenosha. That would be halfway between Milwaukee and Chicago. I've heard a lot of really positive feedback from various patients of his.

I was sleeved by Dr. Regan at Columbia St. Mary's in Milwaukee. It's a great team and they keep you informed and provide a lot of support. There's also a bariatric program at Aurora. I attended their information session and it seemed like they make you do all the work when dealing with the insurance. St. Mary's took care of everything for me.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
