For the past two years, I have been searching for a doctor and procedure to repair my open gastric bypass which was completed in June, 2000. After the sudden death of my husband during our vacation on New Years Eve, 2008, I slipped into old habits and regained 70 pounds.

I happened upon an article about Dr. Sohail Shaikh and the procedure he uses to repair a gastric bypass. I filled out the inquiry form and – to my surprise – I got a call back from Dr. Shaikh’s Patient Relations Director, Kathryn Valentine. I was talking to a real person who listened and answered my questions!

I talked to Dr. Shaikh by telephone shortly afterward. I live in South Carolina and instead of making a trip to New Jersey for the initial screening, he was kind enough to discuss my case by telephone. Dr. Shaikh answered my questions in an easily understood manner. In addition, he detailed his procedure and why it was more effective than the other repair procedures.

In late May, I traveled to New Jersey for my pre-op appointment. During the 30-minute meeting with Dr. Shaikh and Kathryn, we discussed the procedure, the post-op plan, and the “down the road” outlook following surgery. Dr. Shaikh never made me feel he was in a hurry or needed to be somewhere else.

My surgery went off without a hitch. Dr. Shaikh was there to go over the procedure once more with me on surgery day and was there when I woke up. He checked on me by telephone during the next two days and returned a call to me on the weekend when I had a question. Compare this to my first procedure in 2000 when I NEVER saw the surgeon who performed my gastric bypass after the surgery!

Dr. Shaikh is an outstanding surgeon and his caring for his patients is outstanding. I was raised in a small midwestern town and was used to “hometown” caring. Dr. Shaikh provided outstanding medical care and concern. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
My surgery was successful. To date, I have lost more than half of my goal. Dr. Shaikh’s office follows up with me monthly to discuss my progress.

My experience with this procedure has been life changing- a chance to lose weight fast and safely, with less down time spent recuperating. My recovery time was 1 1⁄2 weeks and I had no pain.

With the help of his team of professionals, my process has been a breeze. My nutritionist, Kathryn, has made this transition easier because she has taught me to think healthy and keep it that way without getting frustrated. Now I think healthy not just for me, but for my whole family. Now I can go to the gym and run 2 miles and not feel like I’m dying!

Dr. Shaikh has answered all of my questions and concerns, leaving me worry-free. Thanks to him, I look and feel great and have gone from a size 12 to a size 6! I would recommend this procedure to everyone interested in losing weight without invasive surgery.


M.T., Jersey City, NJ

About 7 years after bypass, I had regained about 55 of the 115lbs I had lost. I found the Center For Bariatric Endoscopy and Dr. Shaikh did the dilated pouch repair for me. Its been about 4 months and I have lost 32lbs and still losing! I couldn’t be happier to have this second chance!

I want to thank Dr.Shaikh & Kathryn for all they help in getting me back on track. They were absolutely all around great to me. It’s only been 3 weeks and following the plan I lost 8lbs & a dress size. They are the best!
