Dr. Feiz Utilizes Minimally-Invasive Laparoscopic Surgeries for Weight Loss Procedures
If you’re considering the lap band in Los Angeles, look no further than double board-certified surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz. As an expert in the field of bariatrics, Dr. Feiz is an innovator in many weight loss procedures, especially laparoscopic surgeries. Laparoscopy is a field of surgery that mean instead of having the underlying structures exposed to perform the surgery, a small camera is used to view the areas being operated on, such as the stomach for lap band or Gastric Sleeve Surgery.
Laparoscopy is preferable to “open” surgery because it is less invasive and produces the same, if not a better outcome. Dr. Feiz has performed gastric banding and gastric sleeve procedures and helped innumerable patients reach a healthy weight and live a longer, happier life. By utilizing laparoscopy, Dr. Feiz is able to access the stomach with minimal incisions, and for select patients, only one incision no bigger than a grain of rice is used to access the stomach. Patients who have the one-incision surgery, called “The STARR Treatment,” experience minimal post-operative pain and optimal cosmetic results due to the very small scar that results.
