Raritan Bay Medical Center Nurse Chooses Weight Loss Surgery

“Today I shoveled snow off my driveway, street, walkways, garbage can path and cleared off my car. I never could have done this a year ago. Thank you, Dr. Adeyeri, for my new life, I’m loving it!! Losing 60 lbs never felt so good.”

Karen Guarino, RN

Karen is the kind of nurse every patient hopes to have–talented, caring, funny and positive.

But personally, she was tired of constantly battling the extra 80 pounds she was carrying around every day.

After conferring with Dr. Adeyeri, Karen decided to have gastric sleeve weight loss surgery.

Today, Karen has lost 60 pounds and plans to drop 20 more to achieve goal weight–a normal BMI.

“I feel the best I have in 20 years,” Karen says.

The RN has a message to anyone who is on the fence about moving forward with a bariatric surgery operation.

“Move forward. Do it. Change your life. I did.”
