Regaining Your Quality of Life in Denver
Denver is one of the best places in the world to be active and spend time outdoors. Just an hour outside of Denver, you have a wide breadth of beautiful hiking trails in the Flatirons and Redrocks. These can be a great destination to spend time with your children and grandchildren, or just to see more of nature. In the winter, the mountains are home to skiing, snowboarding and sledding opportunities that can help you make memories that last a lifetime.
Denver is also home to a lot of other outdoor adventures, from rock climbing to river rafting. The Platte River can be a wonderful destination for families to enjoy floating or just relaxing. For these reasons Denver has become a premier outdoor international travel destination.
When you’re suffering from obesity, these activities can feel frustratingly beyond your reach. But you don’t need to remain trapped for the rest of your life; your dream of transformation can become your reality. If you’ve tried to lose weight before with a nutritious diet and good exercise, only to regain most or all of that weight, then you’re not alone. Our bodies are designed to stay the same weight, and when you try to lose weight your body works overtime to add it back.
Bariatric surgery can be the powerful tool that you need to level the playing field in your fight against obesity. Our patients lose weight, keep it off, and regain a wonderful quality of life. Many of them enjoy hiking, climbing, and even running with friends and family. You can also make the kinds of memories that you are dreaming about , and we look forward to hearing about your dreams and partnering with you to help you begin living your most impossible desires. Your transformation equals turning impossibilities into endless possibilities!
