I know both quite intimately! He performed my surgery.

Were you satisfied with the service? I didn’t know much about him. I had to go with Loyola because of my insurance. Either that or UIC. My doctor at the time recommended Loyola

Had RNY on 6-18-18 with Dr. Rantis at the Kane center.

Felt very comfortable with the pre surgery process with all of them. My PCP is with a different medical group and has said that after being involved with my journey he is very impressed with the Kane center and plans on referring patients to them

I’m in the process of approval for RNY with Dr Wallace at the Kane Center. Just set up all of my appointments working toward a surgery date.

My sister had RNY thru the same group back in 2004 with excellent results!

Hi Nycholle! I’m fighting off my last 30lbs with a Fatloss Camp in Chicago. It’s amazing! The workouts are fierce and the diet is clean, and there’s a ton of support and accountability. And - they provide a plan for maintenance, which is huge for me. Look up “Travis Garza Chicago” on Google- I'd share the link but not sure it’s allowed.

        Vitamin patches work wonderful. They are some what expensive but the only thing I can use
