“I have struggled with weight issues since the tender age of 10 (45 years) and I have tried every weight loss plan out there. The frustration of gaining all the weight back, plus extra pounds, was devastating each and every time.  I am so excited and blessed beyond measure, by my decision to have the Bariatric Sleeve surgery. I have lost 80+ pounds and I am healthier, happier, and have more self-confidence than ever before. I am happy to say that I am no longer on prescription medications, I exercise and don’t dread doing so, and most importantly, I like myself again.  Thanks to Dr. Davenport and his amazing staff for giving me the tools needed for my journey to become a brand new, healthier person. I have to say that everyone in Dr. Davenport’s office makes me feel very special and they all know me by name, which is amazing, since they have so many patients. It’s the personal touch that sets them apart from all the rest!”  – Tammy Chambers, Odessa

“Howdy! My name is Billy Baldwin. I had the Gastric Bypass Surgery done on March 4, 2013. The reason I made the decision to have the surgery was because of my deteriorating health with Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. I visited Dr. Davenport’s team and started my journey to a new and healthier me. The team and support system are unbelievably helpful and caring people that will make you feel as comfortable as possible. I have had a few setbacks but the team and Dr. Davenport were quick to fix them. I started at 506 lbs and I am now at 230 lbs and feel like a whole new man. The best part is I do not have to take anything for Diabetes or High Blood Pressure any more.” – Billy Baldwin, Denver City

Corina Ortiz

“As a mother of 3 active boys, wife, daughter, and busy teacher, I wear many hats where I put the needs of others first. That is, until I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. I’ve had to change my lifestyle and make a life-long choice to take care of MY needs as well if I want to continue taking care of others. Bariatric surgery is a tool that changes you on the outside, but the change happens on the inside first! You have to make the choice to change for the better. It doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process of good eating habits along with exercise. Before, I couldn’t last 10 minutes on an Eliptical and now I can walk 2 miles on it like nothing. I’m proud to say that I am diabetes free thanks to having the gastric bypass!”
