Hawaii's Most Experienced and Only Fellowship-Trained Weight Loss Surgeon Now Coming to Hilo
Date:3/13/2009

Dr. Paul Cirangle, the most experienced bariatric surgeon in the state of Hawaii is now treating patients in Hilo. As the only surgeon that practices on the outer islands, Dr. Cirangle's weight loss surgery patients will now have more treatment options and resources closer to home.

Hilo, HI (PRWEB) March 13, 2009 -- As America's fight with obesity continues, it is imperative that patients understand their increasing health risks and consult the services of an experienced bariatric surgeon. Dr. Paul Cirangle from The Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii continues his overwhelming desire to facilitate excellent treatment to his patients by opening a practice in Hilo on the Island of Hawaii.

Dr. Cirangle's practice is a unique model that caters to the patients by giving them treatment options and resources to fit their individual needs. The physician, as well as the psychotherapist and dietitian are available for in-office or phone appointments. "I am more than happy to come to the outer islands to see my patients, and proud to say that I'm the only weight-loss surgeon that does so," said Dr. Cirangle. "I'm looking forward to treating my existing Hilo patients, as well as helping new folks navigate the journey to improved health and a better quality of life through weight loss surgery."

The Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii and Dr. Cirangle's California practice, Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco (LapSF), offers four weight loss surgeries; the adjustable gastric band (LAP-BAND® and REALIZE™), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, and the duodenal switch. Dr. Cirangle is also the only surgeon in Hawaii and San Francisco to perform StomaphyX™, an incisionless procedure for patients that have regained weight after their original weight loss surgery. These procedures are all done laparoscopically, with very little downtime.

As well as being the only fellowship-trained weight loss surgeon in Hawaii, Dr. Cirangle takes pride in the unparalled statistics of his practice. According to Dr. Cirangle, diabetes is cured in more than 90 percent of patients. Most patients discontinue their diabetic medications or have significantly reduced doses in the first three months after surgery. Normal blood sugar glucose levels and Hemoglobin A1c levels also return as well. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is cured in 80 percent of patients. Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol or high triglycerides) improved in more than 80 percent of patients. Obstructive sleep apnea is cured in 95 percent of patients. Risk of death is decreased by 89 percent.

As well as being a pioneer in bariatric surgery, Dr. Cirangle is also an innovator by treating GERD with an incisionless procedure. He is the first and only specialist in the state of Hawaii to be certified on the EsophyX™ procedure. It is a minimally invasive technique, where the device is introduced into the body not through an incision, but through a natural body orifice, the mouth. The EsophyX device procedure reduces the hiatal hernia and creates a valve between the stomach and esophagus restoring the natural, physiological anatomy to reduce and prevent gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn). With millions of Americans diagnosed with GERD that are either unhappy with inadequate relief or disenchanted with daily drug use, EsophyX offers an excellent alternative.

The Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii and LapSF are weight-loss surgery practices with offices in Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. Dr Cirangle also practices in Northern and Central California, treating patients in Eureka, Sacramento, Stockton, Chico, San Jose, Petaluma, Healdsburg, Monterey and San Luis Obispo county. Dr. Cirangle's practice remains of the forefront in weight loss surgery, and is the only practice in the state of Hawaii and the West Coast to offer all four weight-loss surgery procedures.

Dr. Cirangle recommends that anyone interested in weight-loss surgery options such as the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, lapband, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, duodenal switch or GERD treatment with the EsophyX™ procedure should research the prospects beforehand and use only the services of a fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon with proven experience and expertise in the procedure desired.
