Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Roger Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Roger Rosales received sleeve gastrectomy surgery from Dr. Feiz in 2011 and has lost over 150 Lbs

Here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, our team of medical experts offers sleeve gastrectomy, a proven surgical technique for patients who suffer from obesity, but have experienced little to no success with exercise and dieting. Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy or a gastric sleeve operation, involves removing 75-85% of the stomach, and then reshaping the remaining portion into a sleeve-like structure. The reduced stomach effectively restricts the flow of food particles to the intestines, leading the patient to experience a faster-acting and longer-lasting sensation of satiety. As a result, the patient eats less in each sitting.

Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the United States who are qualified to use the STARR Treatment, which enables him to perform sleeve gastrectomy with ONLY A SINGLE INCISION. This is an improvement even over the traditional laparoscopic method, which allowed for a few, every small incisions. With the method employed by Dr. Feiz, patients enjoy a faster recovery period marked by significantly less discomfort, and virtually no residual scarring (typically a patient may have a single scar no larger in diameter than a freckle or a grain of rice).

Recent studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine show that sleeve gastrectomy can dramatically improve the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. In many cases, patients experience complete remission, and are able to completely stop taking their medication. This procedure can also have a substantial impact on hypertension and other co-morbidities.

An accomplished bariatric surgeon will undoubtedly have a gastric sleeve before and after gallery to demonstrate the quality of his work. Even a cursory examination of Dr. Feiz’s photos and videos of past patients will give you a good sense of his consistent track record of success with this surgical procedure.

Sleeve Gastrectomy Southern California

Sleeve Gastrectomy
The Beverly Hills Comprehensive Weight Loss Center is a top Southern California clinic for sleeve gastrectomy. Sleeve gastrectomy is a less-invasive alternative to traditional gastric bypass surgery, and is a popular choice for Southern California patients who visit our clinic. Unlike with full gastric bypass surgery, our Southern California patients who undergo sleeve gastrectomy do not completely bypass the stomach. Sleeve gastrectomy leaves a much larger space for food within the stomach that enables Southern California individuals who undergo the procedure to eat more food. The sleeve gastrectomy promotes weight loss both by limiting the size of the stomach (thus making the patient feel full sooner) and by slowing the digestion of the food from the stomach into the intestines. Since sleeve gastrectomy slows the food’s passage into the intestine, our Southern California patients report that they feel much more full for longer periods of time and are not immediately hungry following a meal.

Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS, leading bariatric surgeon at the Beverly Hills Comprehensive Weight Loss Center, has performed the world’s most lap band surgeries. His expertise is unparalleled in Southern California, and our patients rave about his caring bedside manner and their wonderful results after undergoing sleeve gastrectomy surgery in our office. Since sleeve gastrectomy is not as invasive as traditional bypass surgery, patients typically heal faster and have less scarring while still enjoying the same weight loss and health benefits. Our Southern California patients enjoy high resolution rates for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obstructive sleep apnea after their sleeve gastrectomy, resulting in a healthier, higher quality of life along with a slimmer waistline.

Sleeve gastrectomy surgery involves removing approximately 75-85% of the stomach and reforming the part that remains into a banana-shaped, sleeve-like structure. This new shape allows for better regulation of food intake. A patient who has undergone sleeve gastrectomy surgery will feel satiated faster, and for longer periods of time, enabling them to eat less often, and eat less during each sitting. The patient enjoys immediate weight loss, and if they adhere to the new diet and lifestyle required for long-term success, sleeve gastrectomy surgery can be an amazing solution to morbid obesity.

Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive bariatric surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon creates a small, sleeve-shaped stomach. It is larger than the stomach pouch created during Roux-en-Y bypass—and is about the size of a banana.

Co-morbid condition resolve as early as 6-12 months after Sleeve Gastrectomy. Sleeve Gastrectomy patients experienced resolution rates for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obstructive sleep apnea that were similar to resolution rates for other restrictive procedures such as gastric banding.
