Most people already know that obesity is a health risk that affects millions of Americans across the country. As a result, doctors and health officials strongly advocate for a healthy diet and exercise as the chief means of preventing the negative health consequences of obesity, many of which are life threatening such as a significantly increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Though these methods are often effective for losing 5, 10, or 20 pounds, for someone suffering with severe obesity the scores of pounds required to reach a healthy weight make traditional methods of weight loss nearly impossible. The obstacles facing a severely obese individual may be greater, but, thanks to high quality bariatric procedures offered by experienced surgeons like our own Dr. Feiz, there is hope for a better, happier, and healthier lifestyle.
Though many of our new patients have little information concerning weight loss surgery, and may not know the difference between common surgeries such as the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve procedures, our team is here to provide the expert knowledge and insight to help you decide if you’re a good candidate for one of our procedures, and which may be right for you. The bariatric operations performed by Dr. Feiz are proven to be safe, and consistently yield positive results.
