Fit to Fitness Athlete: A Reath Patient Story

Every time we post new before and after photos on our website, we try and include a bit of information about the patient. Every now and then, we are truly honored that a patient will write about his or her experience with us and how this has affected their lives.

Here is such a story. More than a single picture, it helps us understand her journey and the impact that surgery has had on her life. I hope you will enjoy reading this, and many thanks to our patient for sharing!

Dr. David B. Reath



Real Patient Photo

“My decision to have my procedures immensely changed my life and propelled me forward with my fitness journey.

I made the choice for myself, to better myself and now I have greater confidence, body image, and self-esteem. This has helped me in so many areas of my life and career as well as gave me the extra boost I needed to accomplish a major life goal of competing as a fitness athlete.

After a smooth recovery and some dauntless hard work at the gym, I am happy to say my work paid off and I took home 1st Place in Open Class and 4th Place in the novice class and I am addicted!!

Dr. Reath made me feel so comfortable and safe, while keeping my goals in mind, always answered my questions and addressed my concerns with candor. A big thanks to the entire staff for always making me feel cared for from the consultation, surgery and recovery to today.

Pictures speak a thousand words and when I look back at how far I have come, I am thankful for those who have helped me along the way. I am so happy with the outcome.  If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t hesitate.

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change. Happiness is a choice, you’re the only person that can make a change to be happy. Go after it!”
