At Dr. Feiz & Associates Weight Loss Surgery Solutions, leading surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is taking advantage of a NEW and EXCITING technique to offer better, faster, and easier weight loss results for their patients. This cutting-edge technique is called micro sleeve bariatric surgery.
With micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery, Dr. Feiz is able to perform a sleeve gastrectomy with only a single cut to your abdominal area (usually near the belly button). With just this one miniscule cut (no more than the diameter of a dime), they can insert flexible instruments to conduct the surgery. This method leaves minimal scarring (a scar around the size of a freckle, or sometimes no noticeable scarring at all).
On top of the cosmetic advantages, micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery results in significantly less post-op pain and a much faster recovery! In the past, a surgery like this required multiple incisions. Now you can enjoy dramatic weight loss with almost no scarring and minimal discomfort.
Of course, not every surgeon is able to employ this advanced technique. A select few experts around the country are pioneering micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery, and some of the most thrilling work is being done right here at Dr Feiz&Associates Weight Loss Surgery Solutions.

Micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery represents a giant leap forward for surgeons and patients alike. State-of-the-art facilities such as Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS’s &Associates Weight Loss Surgery Solutions are already offering laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery, but the advent of technology like the Spider Surgical System has made this relatively non-invasive procedure even easier for people looking for a significant weight loss solution.
First, let us offer a quick refresher course on the standard gastric sleeve surgery. Basically, a highly qualified surgeon like Dr. Feiz makes laparoscopic incisions in the abdominal area, inserts several instruments through those incisions, and removes as much as 85% of your stomach. What remains of your stomach is shaped into a tube or sleeve, around the size of a banana, through which the intake of food can be more easily regulated. As a result, you can feel full faster and longer.
Micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery accomplishes all of this, but with the use of a single incision. The Spider Surgical System includes a slim tube that houses all the necessary instruments. One cut is made to insert the tube – about 18mm in diameter, about the same size as a dime – and the instruments inside fold open like a miniature umbrella. The flexible instruments allow for a 360 degree range of motion, which means the entire micro sleeve gastrectomy surgery can be performed by one surgeon. Once Dr. Feiz completes the procedure, the instruments collapse back inside the tube, and he removes it from the incision. Micro sleeve bariatric surgery thus leaves behind minimal scarring, and sometimes no scarring at all!
