A little-known hormone is responsible for controlling the lives of obese patients, known as the ghrelin hormone. Fortunately, hunger doesn't have to control your life anymore after undergoing sleeve gastrectomy with highly reputable, board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz. Sleeve gastrectomy involves the removal of approximately 85 percent of the stomach, which includes the portion that produces ghrelin. Because patients have a significantly reduced stomach capacity and experience minimal cravings, they can lose weight and finally keep it off.
As a pioneer in improved bariatric surgery techniques, Dr. Feiz counts himself among the few bariatric surgeons in the U.S. who give their patients the STARR Treatment. This method utilizes only a single incision, and for eligible patients, it results in only a tiny scar no larger than a grain of rice. Apart from less obvious scarring, this technique also results in reduced post-op pain and quicker recovery.
Dr. Feiz & Associates is staffed with talented bariatric surgeons, nutritionists and weight loss experts who are able to guide patients through the weight loss journey starting with their initial consultation, the surgery itself, and aftercare. During the first appointment, patients may not know the pros and cons of sleeve gastrectomy vs. lap band surgery or any other the other procedures available to them, but Dr. Feiz is able to guide patients to the right decision for them.
