Jeff Pearson

Meet one of our amazing robotic sleeve gastrectomy patients, Jeff Pearson. After attempting multiple fad diets in the past and struggling with his weight for many years, Jeff decided it was time to make a change. He scheduled a consultation with Stelios Rekkas, MD, to discuss options and was particularly interested in the robotic sleeve gastrectomy to improve his overall health.


In August 2019, Jeff underwent surgery and at his one-week post-operative appointment, he had already lost 47 pounds and his diabetes medication had been drastically reduced. As of October 2019, Jeff has completely stopped his insulin, has gone from a size 40 waist to 34, and from 3X shirts to XL. Jeff says, “I’m feeling great … I just feel better in general. My energy level seems to feel good. I just feel good.” Would he do it again? “Oh yeah,” he says.
