I'm having a hard time finding a good surgeon for a gastric sleeve surgery. I'd like to talk to someone to look more into it. I'm from the Modesto area, anyone have any good ideas? Much appreciated.

Can you just check all of them in what you have? There is a good list of questions to ask at some of the blogs. I have a long one but it encompasses things I found out when the surgeon dropped my care. The complications that come up, you can help yourself by finding out whether or not they'll take care of you or just blow you off once the surgery is done.

Self-pay? I did Dr. Quinones in Tijuana two weeks ago tomorrow. $4,500

My choice in the central valley would be Dr. Keshishian. While now based down in Glendale, I believe that he is still operating out of his old digs in Delano (ok, the other end of the valley for you, but the best are worth a trip,) He is one of those long experienced DS surgeons (which means that, by default, he's been doing sleeves for a couple decades) which to me are much preferred over the guys who are just now adding the sleeve to their existing RNY/band practices. A similar distance over into SF is home to several very good choices (Drs. Rabkin, Jossert, or if you're a very high BMI and really want a sleeve, Cirangle.) I have seen a couple of names listed in Modesto over the years but don't know anything about them.

Good Luck,

I did use Dr. Q and had no problems with the procedure at all - it's been over two and a half years now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
