Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedure With Dr. Michael Feiz Serves as a Highly Effective Alternative to Lap Band Surgery
Date:7/29/2010

LOS ANGELES, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- As of late, the most prominently advertised and promoted form of bariatric surgery has been the Lap-Band procedure, a minimally invasive operation in which an adjustable band is fitted over the top of a patient's stomach in order to restrict food capacity and promote weight loss. However, some patients prefer to achieve comparable results of Lap Band surgery without the use of the band implant. Luckily, an extremely effective alternative lies in the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, a bariatric surgery method that Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz has successfully performed on numerous patients suffering from obesity characterized by a BMI of 35 or higher.

In the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, a big portion of the stomach pouch is completely removed and the remaining portion, approximately the size of a banana, is stapled closed. This allows for a two-prong attack on the patient's obesity, in which the patient feels full quicker because of the smaller stomach size, and the post-meal feeling of satiety lasts longer because the hormone that provokes hunger is removed when the stomach is made smaller. The results of the sleeve gastrectomy procedure are comparable to that of the Lap-Band, with many cases exhibiting superior results. In addition, just like with the Lap Band, sleeve gastrectomies can be performed laparoscopically, in which 3-4 tiny incisions and a small camera are used to carry out the surgery, instead of making broad incision that exposes the abdominal cavity. With the sleeve gastrectomy, patients are able to relieve themselves of many co-morbidities associated with their obesity by decreasing cholesterol levels, improving high blood pressure and even curing their type 2 diabetes.

The dramatic weight loss experienced after the sleeve gastrectomy often motivates patients to optimize their results by exercising and adopting healthy eating habits. Since the sleeve gastrectomy is an irreversible procedure, patients don't have to worry about getting anything removed or adjusted after the surgery is performed, making it an attractive option for many obese individuals who wish to change their lives for the better with bariatric surgery.

Dr. Feiz has performed countless bariatric surgeries, consistently providing his patients with success stories. A member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons, American Medical Association, Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons, and American College of Surgeons, Dr. Feiz is a well-established and trustworthy source for the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, as well as Lap-Band, Lap Gastric Bypass, Lap-Adrenalectomy, and gallbladder surgery.
