Is it Time for Sleeve Gastric Surgery
For seriously obese patients who are considering whether or not they should undertake a gastric sleeve operation, there is no better physician to consult with than Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. Widely regarded as perhaps the finest bariatric surgeon in the U.S., the doctor is an acknowledged master of the vertical sleeve gastric operation often abbreviated as VSG.
Dr. Feiz boasts a zero mortality rate and has performed countless bariatric operations of all types; he knows the benefits and risks of each type of operation inside and out. He is frequently praised by patients for his sensitivity in dealing with the difficult issues associated with weight. While not every overweight patient is necessarily a candidate for any bariatric surgery, there is no reason that any significantly obese person who has pursued traditional weight loss options should not seriously investigate whether a sleeve gastrectomy would be right for their personal situation and take advantage of a free consultation with the doctor.
This sleeve operation has become a commonly accepted option among bariatric patients in recent years due to its status as an operation that is, on the one hand, less invasive and very effective when compared to the older gastric bypass operation. It is also often seen as more reliable than the lap band procedure, which nevertheless has the benefit of being reversible.
