Brent Patient Story

One Patients Story: “I feel very fortunate.”

Brent Beeler-Carlton, a registered nurse at Baptist Health Louisville in Kentucky, is also a patient of bariatric surgeon John Oldham, MD, and recently had a sleeve gastrectomy using Titan SGS®.

“It’s been a tremendous journey and life changing decision. I’ve lost 90 pounds in the first six months. I feel very fortunate to have had a great medical staff at Baptist Health Louisville and a gifted surgeon like John Oldham, MD, who utilizes advanced technologies like the Titan SGS surgical stapler.”

Brent is pictured here with Dr. Oldham and the surgical team at Baptist Health Louisville, including Kelly Hines, MD, Ines Krljas, RN, Stephanie Rich, ST, and Katye Smith, APRN-NP.

Standard Bariatrics is honored to be part of Brent’s story. If you would like to join the growing community of bariatric surgeons using Titan SGS, learn more or request training at standardbariatrics.com.

Dr Jaronczyk

Save Time in the OR with Titan SGS®

Michael J. Jaronczyk, MD, FACS, of the RWJBarnabas Health Medical Group in New Jersey, performs a sleeve gastrectomy using the Titan SGS® stapler from Standard Bariatrics.

With advanced training in laparoscopic and bariatric surgery, Dr. Jaronczyk is part of the growing community of surgeons now using the Titan SGS® in sleeve gastrectomy. He said he appreciates the value of the Titan SGS in “saving precious OR time.” Because Titan SGS takes approximately half the time to create the staple line, it can also potentially improve procedure time and operational efficiencies.1

Dr. Doyle Using the Titan SGS® at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Maryland

Bariatric surgeon Courtney Doyle, MD recently used the Titan SGS® for the first time. Dr. Doyle works at the Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) Weight Loss and Metabolic Surgery Program in Annapolis, MD. She is interested in emerging bariatric techniques and technologies. After observing AAMC Director Alejandro Gandsas, MD, using the Titan SGS in bariatric surgery, she requested training.
