Sleeve Gastrectomy Carson
As the nationally-renowned bariatric surgeon Los Angeles patients laud, Dr. Michael Feiz is widely known for his extremely effective, safe sleeve gastrectomy Carson patients have appreciated for years after their procedure. Also known as gastric sleeve surgery, Dr. Feiz employs innovative methods to give patients the VIP treatment with top-of-the-line surgical instruments and a highly knowledgeable team who perform sleeve gastrectomy Carson residents can trust is safe.
In the United States, many people are in the situation of fighting obesity and related illnesses, but with sleeve gastrectomy surgery, Carson residents don't have to face the perils of obesity their whole lives. Sleeve gastrectomy surgery in Carson with Dr. Feiz involves the removal of approximately 85% of the stomach which is then fashioned into the shape of a small banana, or sleeve, hence the name. The new stomach not only has a much lower capacity for food, but patients feel reduced appetite as well. This phenomenon is thanks to the removal of a segment of the stomach called the fundus, which produces the "hunger hormone," ghrelin. As a result, patients feel full more quickly and for longer periods of time so they can go longer periods of time between meals.
After Sleeve Gastrectomy
After bariatric surgery in Carson, Dr. Feiz will continue to be your biggest advocate. Patients have the luxury of being given the surgeon's personal cell phone number, so they can call at any time with their concerns or questions about their progress or any potential complications. Dr. Feiz also has routine follow-up with his patients to ensure their healing goes according to plan, and many are able to go back to work within two weeks, after a short stay in the hospital to check that they recover well.
