One of the most popular procedures is sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles. In fact, this procedure is so consistently effective, it is gaining popularity all over the world. Dr. Feiz and his team specialize in gastric sleeve procedures, and often recommend this to patients. The gastric sleeve procedure removes up to 75 percent of the stomach, creating a much smaller “sleeve,” without disrupting the digestive system’s order. People who have the gastric sleeve report feeling fuller, and more satisfied, by smaller meals. This helps the person lose weight rapidly. However, Dr. Feiz also works with patients after their procedures to make sure they are also making healthy, lasting lifestyle changes, to complement their surgery.
