Ladies Lose

Weight Loss - Bus Ladies


At one time, Bobbie Long, Kathy Taylor, Val Strong, Renee Tarbell and Karen McGean (left to right) weighed, collectively, 1,300 pounds. Thanks to the Crouse Hospital Bariatric Surgeons Jeffrey DeSimone, MD, and Kenneth Cooper, DO, they are now down more than 500 pounds among them.

After struggling for years to lose weight using one diet program after another, the women each came to their own conclusion that weight-loss surgery was the answer. They had a lot to lose — and they have!  Listen to Bobbie, Renee and Karen tell their story.
