LOS ANGELES, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bariatric surgery is not just about losing weight. The most advanced procedures available today, from gastric sleeve surgery to gastric bypass and the Lap Band, offer dramatic weight loss results, but another benefit that gets less attention is the potential effect on certain co-morbidities like hypertension and diabetes. Certain procedures have been shown to have a strong impact on these health conditions, in many cases even causing complete remission, and eliminating the need for medication. In other words, bariatric surgery offers more than a marked improvement in your quality of life; it can literally save your life.
At Dr. Feiz & Associates, a leading surgical center for weight loss in Los Angeles, experienced medical practitioners like Dr. Michael Feiz have been observing the effects of bariatric surgery on these co-morbidities for years. Those professional observations have now also been borne out by recent studies. Dr. Feiz has earned a particularly strong and widespread reputation because he is one of a very few surgeons qualified to employ what is called the STARR Treatment. With this specialized technique, he is able to perform procedures like sleeve gastrectomy and the Lap Band in Beverly Hills with ONLY A SINGLE INCISION. Also known as micro sleeve surgery and micro Lap Band surgery, respectively, these state-of-the-art operations offer a faster recovery, less post-operative discomfort, and virtually no scarring (usually patients are left with a scar no larger in diameter than a freckle or a grain of rice).
The implications of the STARR Treatment are staggering. Today, top physicians like Dr. Feiz are making surgical weight loss less invasive and safer than ever before. At the same time, Dr. Feiz is a responsible doctor who cautions prospective patients that these procedures do not represent a silver bullet. Patients must be committed to continued weight loss after the surgery, with healthy diet and exercise. Fortunately, the team at Dr. Feiz & Associates stays involved long after the operation is over, working with patients to shed more weight and keep off those pounds.
