Grateful Weight Loss Patient Praises Micro Gastric Sleeve Surgery

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hi my name is Maddy Bronstein. I am a 49 year old wife and mother of one child, and I have been dealing with weight issues for several years now. As a registered nurse, I am well aware of the many health issues associated with being overweight. After trying the conventional ways to lose the weight (fad diets, yoyo diets, starving myself), I found myself searching for a more permanent solution. One name kept popping up in my research: Dr. Michael Feiz, who is well known for offering cutting edge solutions for weight loss in Los Angeles.

I was hesitant to do a surgical procedure, and frankly quite nervous. But when I met Dr. Feiz, his mannerism was soft spoken and comforting. He went into great depth regarding the pros and cons of each procedure. He understood my needs and what best suited me, which I really appreciated.  We decided the gastric sleeve surgery was the appropriate procedure for me.

My surgery was scheduled for July 13, 2011 at the Town Center Surgery, in Valencia, California. I elected to do an innovated procedure called the STARR Treatment (Surgical Tiny Access and Rapid Recovery), which allows for micro gastric sleeve surgery. This is the same as the gastric sleeve surgery but performed entirely through a single very miniscule incision.

The surgery, which was less than an hour and a half, went flawlessly. I was observed and then released after 24 hours. What is so amazing about this surgery is that I had very little scarring, if any, to be seen (less than a size of a freckle), and my post-operative pain was very minimal.

It's now 12 weeks since the STARR surgery and I am THRILLED with the results. I have already lost over 47 pounds and I am feeling fantastic! I HIGHLY recommend this procedure to anyone who is battling weight issues.

Thank you Dr. Feiz for changing my life for the better!!!
