Weight loss surgery gave Michael a new zest for life

Patient testimonial for Northwell Health and Onward Publishing:

Growing up in a restaurant family, Michael Mancuso started working around food young. While his customers might be eating at 7pm, he wolfed down food late at night, after the crowd died down. That unhealthy pattern continued after he got married and became a father—his family often ate fast food and takeout. Michael, now 44 and living in Glen Cove, NY, went from being a big kid to an obese man. At 350 pounds, he suffered numerous health problems, and took many medications.
