Sleeve Gastrectomy is Stepping Out of Lap Band’s Shadow with Dr. Feiz
For surgeries including sleeve gastrectomy and lap band, Los Angeles-based bariatric surgeon Dr. Feiz offers world-renowned expertise in performing procedures that regularly change the lives of his patients.
When most people think of weight loss surgery, lap band is often the procedure they think of first. In the procedure, a band is placed around the upper stomach, converting it into an hourglass shape. The band is then adjusted to restrict the amount of solid food that can be consumed before one feels full. Lap Band surgery has been an exceptionally effective tool in combatting obesity in the U.S., and Dr. Feiz has been at the forefront of the revolutionary trend.
Though it is probably not as well-known as lap band, sleeve gastrectomy is no less effective. Dr. Feiz himself has frequently touted the benefits of this procedure, which is also known as VSG surgery, and involves the removal of 75% to 85% of the stomach. For sleeve gastrectomy, Los Angeles residents have come to trust Dr. Feiz first and foremost. As one of the only U.S. surgeons able to use the cutting-edge STARR Treatment, Dr. Feiz can complete the entire procedure with only A SINGLE INCISION. Thanks to Dr. Feiz’s expertise in using the STARR Treatment, his patients enjoy a shorter than average recovery period, less post-operative discomfort and negligible residual scarring.
