Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

    We hope you are all having a wonderful, fun-filled, and safe summer. We have some new products to share with you this week, as well as a special event for our patients at this month's San Jose support group meeting.


*A gentle reminder regarding LapSF support groups:

Our patients choose to have surgery here because of our excellent results and unique approach to aftercare. One of the amenities included in patient fees is the support groups led by Dr. Cirangle. We have had many requests lately from patients who are choosing/have chosen to have surgery elsewhere, yet want to come participate in our groups for Dr. Cirangle's guidance. Post-operative programs vary greatly between physicians and patients should be participants in the programs led by their surgeon. Our support groups concentrate on the principals of Dr. Cirangle's practice of medicine and are planned specifically for our patients who have decided to have Dr. Cirangle and LapSF as their medical team.*


We have a few new products that we have added to our E-store.


Healthwise Protein Wave Gelatin: Topical Fruit and Grape

80 calories, 15 grams protein, 6 gm carbohydrates, 0 gm fat

Instead of having regular sugar free jello with no added nutrition benefit, these gelatins will provide you with the same great flavor and texture but also 15 grams of protein!


Healthwise Protein Drinks in MINT Hot Chocolate!

A tasty new addition to the hot chocolate line we carry. This drink mix can be made hot and cold, and has a refreshing, minty flavor.


Healthwise Protein Drinks in Amaretto Cappuccino!

 For those of you who love our Vanilla Cappuccino, this is a new product for you. Same great taste with an Italian flair. Amaretto is a nice almond liqueur flavor. Great for those mornings you want coffee, but need protein!



FYI: Change of Address


Please note that our San Jose office has changed to a different suite number, but still located in the same building.


3803 S. Bascom Avenue

Suite 200

Campbell, CA 95008


We will begin using this new office starting July 25th.



We have a guest speaker at this month's San Jose support group.


Topic: "The Connection Between What You Feed Your Head & What You Feed Your Body".


Guest Speaker: Jill Temkin (from Living Thin Within)


When: San Jose Support Group, July 25th, starting at 7:30


According to Ms. Temkin, your internal reality can either support-or weaken- your potential for sustaining health, weight loss and well-being. If you have a commitment to living a healthy lifestyle, but still "tune in" to limiting beliefs that trigger old patterns of self loathing and self-soothing (i.e., over-eating) than you would benefit from attending this special presentation. Ms. Temkin will talk about what it takes to cultivate practical, healthy strategies that successfully deal with the underlying needs we used to try to meet through food.


Jill Temkin has been facilitating counseling and training programs for almost 30 years. Jill has a Master's Degree in Psychology, is a Certified Psychodrama Trainer, Educator, and Psychotherapist, a Registered Addiction Specialist, and a Non-Violent Communication Mediator & Coach. Jill founded Living Thin Within in response to her own journey for support after WLS. Her mission is to support others in the WLS process to thrive in their new bodies and radiate health from within.


Jill will be facilitating a full day workshop on the same topic on Saturday, July 28th, if interested in more information or a flyer, contact Jill at For more information, visit her website at
