Experts in Sleeve Gastrectomy in greater Los Angeles area
Two-thirds of American adults are diagnosed as overweight, obese, or severely obese. For some of these people eating less and exercising more may be sufficient. However, if you are one of the thousands of severely obese people in the United States, you know that these two lifestyle changes alone are not enough for you to quickly lose weight, and avoid comorbid diseases. That’s because a small change in your habits won’t do the trick and big changes are incredibly difficult to sustain over time. Fortunately, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., has gathered a team of experts at Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help patients like you. Dr. Feiz is one of the premier West Coast experts on bariatric surgery procedures like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, and his compassionate team are there to support patients before and after a procedure.
When you are searching for sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, look no further than the knowledgeable professionals at Dr. Feiz & Associates. As the founder, Dr. Feiz is one of the most skilled bariatric surgeons who are qualified to perform a sleeve gastrectomy using one incision. This reduces the impact on a patient’s body, so they can get back to enjoying their life sooner. The sleeve gastrectomy itself typically removes about 75 percent of the stomach, creating a permanently smaller “pouch,” so smaller meals are more filling. Unlike gastric bypass, however, sleeve gastrectomy does not change the order of the digestive system, so there are fewer potential complications. It also provides important metabolic and hormonal benefits.
Dr. Feiz often recommends sleeve gastrectomy to his patients, because it is safe and effective. He is also an expert in band to sleeve revision, so contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today for your first appointment.
