Here at Dr. Feiz and Associates, we understand the struggles facing individuals living with severe obesity better than most. As a leading center for bariatric surgery in the Los Angeles area, we’re dedicated to providing safe and effective solutions for severely obese individuals to help them work toward a healthier, happier, and longer life. All of the procedures performed by our own Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., from a gastric sleeve, to a band to sleeve revision procedure are performed with precision, skill, and the highest level of professionalism from one of the most respected surgeons in the field.
The truth about severe obesity is that, despite misunderstood beliefs to the contrary, it is almost impossible for a severely obese individual to reach a healthy weight through diet and exercise. 99% of the people who make the attempt fail . That’s because these methods are rarely effective for yielding the scores of pounds necessary for someone suffering with severe obesity to reach a healthy weight. Nevertheless, being to do so is important because severe obesity is proven to lead to debilitating, serious, and life threatening issues such as stroke, diabetes, and heart failure. Unfortunately, many severely obese individuals simply give up and accept the consequences.
Rather than accepting poor health, the solutions we offer are proven to be consistently effective. Even if you don’t know the difference between a lap band vs. gastric sleeve we’ll provide you with the understanding you need and help you determine if weight loss surgery is right for you.
