(AP) An Indiana couple who topped the scales at more than 700 pounds combined have undergone weight-loss surgery, on the same day.
The 305-pound husband underwent gastric bypass surgery, and his 402-pound wife had a duodenal switch. Both operations were performed by Dr. Vivek Prachand.
The doctor says it's the first time he has performed surgeries on a husband and wife in the same day.
