Experts in Sleeve Gastrectomy in Los Angeles
If you are severely obese, you have probably struggled with your weight for much of your life. You have tried diet and exercise, but even when you lose weight, you may find that you regain weight rapidly when you stop or reduce these routines. You may even gain rebound weight, which can go even further to increase your risk of comorbid diseases like diabetes or heart disease. You very likely want a solution to this problem, but you may not know where to look. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like you. He is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in Southern California, and can help you with your weight loss surgery options, like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
One of the most popular and effective procedures is sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles and throughout the U.S. In fact, this procedure is growing in popularity in much of the world, not just North America. The gastric sleeve procedure reduces the size of the stomach up to 75 percent, leaving a small pouch-like area that can still absorb nutrients and digest food. However, the smaller stomach will help you feel full much faster. There are other health benefits, as well, including stabilizing blood sugar to reduce or prevent diabetes after a weight loss. Dr. Feiz has worked with numerous patients, and often recommends sleeve gastrectomy, since it is so incredibly effective. After your procedure, and with the help of healthy lifestyle changes, you can lose weight, get healthy, and enjoy life again.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the leading experts on band to sleeve revision, for patients who do not experience benefit from their Lap Bands. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
