For those seeking life-saving bariatric surgery, there’s an option with the sleeve gastrectomy in Pasadena with Dr. Feiz. In the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, a section of the lower stomach is cut and removed, and the remaining stomach area (roughly the size of a banana) is sutured or stapled shut. Since patients can’t take in as much food because of their smaller stomachs, and there’s a longer lasting feeling of satiety caused by decreased hunger hormone levels, weight loss occurs and continues for months, even years after surgery. Dr. Feiz combines psychological counseling and dietary advice with the sleeve gastrectomy in Pasadena in order to create a 3-prong approach to the well-being of his patients.
Typically, Dr. Feiz performs the sleeve gastrectomy in Pasadena laparoscopically, which means that rather than making a broad incision in the abdomen in order to perform the procedure, 3-4 small cuts are made so that narrow instruments, including a tiny camera, can be inserted to carry out the procedure. The main benefits of this particular method are the near absence of visible scarring and decreased recovery time. In contrast to the gastric bypass and gastric band procedure, there’s no risk of mal-nutrition and no need for an adjustable implant. Please call us and schedule an appointment if you’d like a consultation to see if the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy procedure is a viable option for you.
