Pioneering the Lap Band to Sleeve Gastrectomy Conversion
Date:7/27/2012

LOS ANGELES, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you tired of never feeling satiated, and over-eating as a result? Have you had enough of regurgitation caused by the blockage of food? These are some of the complaints of patients who have received the Lap Band, a gastric band device that has a tremendous track record for about 60% of patients, but sadly does leave about 40% with lackluster results. For that 40% still struggling with the Lap Band, there is an answer: sleeve gastrectomy.

The increasingly popular and extremely effective sleeve gastrectomy surgery, also known as the gastric sleeve, involves removing approximately 75-85% of the stomach and shaping what remains into a sleeve-like structure. Gastric sleeve surgery is the only proven bariatric method to address the hormonal aspect of hunger. While the Lap Band depends more on behavioral modification, sleeve gastrectomy actually suppresses the appetite by dramatically reducing the patient's ghrelin levels. Ghrelin is a hunger-stimulating hormone that lines the fundus area of the stomach - an area that is removed during the gastric sleeve procedure. By reducing this hormone, patients who undergo sleeve gastrectomy achieve that satiated feeling much faster, resulting in less food intake and subsequent weight loss. You genuinely feel full, so over-eating isn't a problem. You also don't experience food blockage, so your days of regurgitating are behind you.

The Band to Sleeve revision is becoming a very sought-after alternative for many patients, but it's essential to do a little legwork and find a bariatric surgeon with substantive experience and expertise with this particular procedure. A leading expert with conversions is a Beverly Hills weight loss surgeon named Dr. Michael Feiz, who heads the prestigious surgery center Dr. Feiz & Associates. With a stellar success rate and a reputation for exceptional patient care, Dr. Feiz is raising the bar for an entire industry. If you are ready to try the leading alternative to the Lap Band, you should consider contacting Dr. Feiz & Associates for a FREE initial consultation or attending one of their FREE informational seminars.
