Sleeve Gastrectomy for Los Angeles Patients
Most adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese, and one in 20 of those individuals are severely obese. This means they have a body mass index that makes them far more likely to suffer comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, reproductive difficulties, and even depression and some types of cancer. If you are one of these people, you know that you need to lose weight in order to improve your quality of life, but you may struggle constantly with reaching a healthy weight. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients like you determine if you qualify for weight loss surgery. Dr. Feiz and his team are some of the leading bariatric experts on the West Coast, and can help you with procedures including band to sleeve revision.
If you don’t know your options, you can set up an appointment with Dr. Feiz and he will help you determine if you qualify for weight loss surgery. One of the most popular weight loss procedures, sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, has helped thousands of people reach their goal weight quickly, and maintain that weight. The gastric sleeve procedure involves removing about 75 percent of the stomach, to create a pouch-like “sleeve.” This allows you to eat less, but still feel full. The procedure also maintains the original order in the digestive system, so your recovery will be faster.
At Dr. Feiz & Associates, weight loss surgery is only part of the process. Whether you go for the gastric sleeve procedure, or need sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band removal, Dr. Feiz’s team will work with you before and after your procedure to help you achieve outstanding results.
