Bonnie Pivacek

It didn’t take long for Bonnie Pivacek to know that bariatric surgery with Dr. Michael Snyder was right for her. After attending one of Dr. Snyder’s seminars, she felt confident in the procedure because of how he explained the process and made it easy to understand. She always felt comfortable asking questions and was encouraged and supported by the Denver Center of Bariatric Surgery team.

Following the gastric bypass surgery, Bonnie is now able to be more active*. From walking her dogs to taking vacations, she has more energy to do the things she loves. She is confident in how she looks and even updated her wardrobe to prove it. Wearing more colorful clothes instead of darker attire, Bonnie has found she is more comfortable in group settings and can be herself. Feeling better physically, she knows she will continue to improve her health and encourages anyone looking to lose weight to know that they can look and feel great too.

“For a long time I have been trying to lose weight and tried many diets that only worked for a short time before I gained all of my weight back again. Dr. Snyder helped me to stay on track and feel good about myself,” Bonnie shares.
