18-Year Old Loses 104 Lbs with Bariatric Surgery

  Email   Print

Catherine Shaw celebrated high school graduation a little differently from most 18-years-old.

On September 17, 2018 -- after months of research -- she had bariatric surgery at Saint Thomas Rutherford's Bariatric Center.

This life-changing decision kick-started Catherine's ultimate weight loss of 104 pounds.


Before her surgery, Catherine was a volleyball player who ate healthy meals and tried various medical options. Still, her weight only budged slightly. Today, 19-year-old pre-law student Catherine Shaw enjoys studying, spending time with her fiancé, and working as a retail beauty advisor.

"Before surgery," Catherine says, "I felt angry with and burdened by my weight. Now, I'm more relaxed, bubbly, and confident. I feel like people my age don't realize that bariatric surgery is even an option."
