Here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, experts in the field of bariatric surgery are offering breakthrough techniques that offer dramatic results. Weight loss sleeve surgery, or gastric sleeve surgery, involves removing 75% or more of the stomach. These accomplished medical professionals then take the remaining portion of the stomach and alter its shape. The new shape resembles a banana-size sleeve, which serves to regulate the flow of food particles. As a result of weight loss sleeve surgery, patients feel full faster and maintain that sensation of satiety for a longer duration, allowing them to wait longer between each meal. Patients enjoy immediate weight loss with this extremely effective and safe procedure.
Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is able to perform weight loss sleeve surgery with only A SINGLE INCISION. Using state-of-the-art technology, they offer an advanced alternative known as micro sleeve surgery. With micro sleeve surgery, patients experience a faster recovery and less scarring (just one scar no bigger than a freckle or a single grain of rice). This is a very sophisticated procedure, and only a few select bariatric surgeons in the country have sufficient training to use it. Patients interested in micro sleeve surgery should inquire with the accomplished surgical team at Dr. Feiz & Associates for more information, and to schedule an appointment.
