Vertical Sleeve

With morbid obesity on the rise, interest in all kinds of weight loss surgeries is also very much on the rise. One of the most talked about of such procedures is vertical sleeve gastrectomy. As a board certified surgeon and one of the leading experts on less invasive types of bariatric surgery, Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is one of its premier practitioners of the procedure which is sometimes known by its acronym, VSG.

Vertical Sleeve vs. Lap Band

Unlike the lap band, which squeezes off the upper portion of the stomach, the gastric sleeve procedure permanently reshapes the stomach to a sleeve-live shape that is roughly the size of a banana. The result is a significantly reduced appetite; the vertical sleeve procedure usually produces very rapid weight loss.

Of course, there’s much more to the gastric sleeve than that. Dr. Feiz knows all about the many options available to those seeking out solutions in their personal battle with obesity. Clearly, simply trying to reduce caloric intake and increasing exercise, while excellent steps in themselves, are not producing the desired results for countless individuals. A highly compassionate medical doctor with a zero mortality rate, Dr. Feiz is there to provide patients with the wise counsel they need to make an informed decision on the pros and cons of such techniques as lap bands and verticals sleeves.
