If you’re considering weight loss surgery such as sleeve gastrectomy, Beverly Hills is only one option for first-rate medical expertise. The premiere weight loss surgeons at Dr. Feiz & Associates, offer their services throughout Southern California, from Bakersfield to Huntington Beach, and yes, even in the heart of Beverly Hills.
For patients suffering from excessive weight or obesity, modern science has made sleeve gastrectomy surgery one of the most effective procedures available. Also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, the procedure involves removing 75% to 85% of the stomach, reshaping the remaining portion into a sleeve-like structure. The reduced stomach restricts flow of food particles to the intestines, as well as decreasing feelings of hunger in the patient.
While sleeve gastrectomy no doubt requires a top surgeon to be performed effectively, it is actually a substantially less-invasive alternative to traditional gastric bypass surgery, particularly when performed by Dr. Feiz. As one of the few surgeons qualified to use the cutting-edge STARR Treatment, Dr. Feiz is actually able to perform the entire procedure with ONLY A SINGLE INCISION. This is why our patients consistently enjoy a faster recovery period and virtually no residual scarring.
For those who suffer from obesity or excessive weight, sleeve gastrectomy can be a substantial step towards a healthier, more fulfilling life. However, Dr. Feiz would like to stress that it is not necessarily the right choice for everyone. If you think you or a loved one might be a good candidate for sleeve gastrectomy, call Dr. Feiz & Associates today for a FREE initial consultation.
