Gastric Bypass Los Angeles
Here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, we have been offering gastric bypass in Los Angeles for many years. In that time, we have earned a sterling reputation for consistent surgical results and high-quality, multidisciplinary patient care. People often have a lot of questions about gastric bypass in Los Angeles, and our team is always eager to share any and all information on this extremely effective and safe procedure. Essentially, gastric bypass involves dividing the stomach into a large lower pouch and a small upper pouch, reducing the amount of food that can be ingested and absorbed. This procedure can be performed laparoscopically (also known as limited access surgery), to reduce scarring and increase the speed of recovery. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS performs gastric bypass in Los Angeles at a much lower complication rate than the national average, and he has never had a single mortality. He also offers gastric bypass after Lap Band, for patients who, for various reasons, have not seen the results they were hoping for.
We believe strongly that a patient should be fully informed before, in collaboration with their doctor, making any kind of final decision about the best course of action. You may find that gastric bypass is not the right procedure for you. Indeed, you may end up being a better candidate for gastric sleeve or Lap Band surgery in Los Angeles, both of which are also performed at Dr. Feiz & Associates. It’s also possible you will discover that there are non-surgical alternatives that can help you lose the weight.
