Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S and the entire medical support team at Dr. Feiz and Associates are now providing outstanding weight loss healthcare at our Rancho Cucamonga location. We’re here to help severely overweight individuals in the Inland Empire fight and win the war against obesity through the use of the latest and best in bariatric (weight loss) surgery.
Typically, we employ a procedure called sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure employs minimally invasive laparoscopic technology to remove roughly 75%-85% of the stomach. The reduction in the size of the stomach makes it uncomfortable to overeat, but it also has additional hormonal benefits that can dramatically reduce the hormonally sparked hunger pangs that make weight loss so difficult.
The gastric sleeve weight loss surgery has become an increasingly popular option for people interested in a serious, permanent weight loss solution. This breakthrough procedure involves the removal of 75% or more of the stomach. What remains is then reshaped into the form of a sleeve, enabling the more regulated flow of food particles and helping the patient achieve a faster, longer-lasting sensation of satiety (thus allowing them to comfortably eat smaller portions at less frequent intervals). It is an extremely safe operation, but it would behoove you to carefully select a surgeon with extensive experience and a proven track record.
Here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, our highly trained and experienced medical team has made a name for itself as the go-to source for gastric sleeve surgery in Rancho Cucamonga. Indeed, Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is among an elite group of bariatric surgeons in America who are qualified to offer micro sleeve surgery. This advanced method is identical to that of traditional gastric sleeve surgery, except our specialists employ cutting edge instruments that allow them to perform the surgery with only A SINGLE INCISION to the abdominal area. This means a faster and less painful recovery period, as well as virtually no scarring (you’ll have at most a scar no larger than a freckle).
