LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Morbid obesity is an epidemic. People struggling with this debilitating condition have been inundated with a media blitz of miracle diet pills and plans that often bring with them their own host of problematic health issues. For too long, society has heaped scorn on the morbidly obese without offering substantive medical solutions. As a result, millions of people feel terribly alone with what seems like an insurmountable challenge. When it comes to weight loss solutions, there is, as Shakespeare wrote, "a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Thankfully, there are medical professionals whose voices are finally coming through loud and clear. One particularly noteworthy professional in this vital field is Dr. Michael Feiz, who has been offering the revolutionary Lap Band in Los Angeles for several years now.
Southern California may have a reputation for good health, but in truth the never-ending pursuit of weight loss in Los Angeles remains as challenging here as anywhere else in America. The city is teeming with people who have tried time and again to lose significant amounts of weight, only to fall short of their goals through no fault of their own. But if what is happening over at Dr. Feiz's offices is any indication of what the future holds, the success stories are about to start racking up.
Just what is so popular about the Lap Band being offered by Dr. Feiz & Associates? Why are more people opting for the Lap Band in Beverly Hills, Encino, and so many other locations throughout Los Angeles? First, the Lap Band is the least invasive option for bariatric (weight loss) surgery. Other procedures for weight loss in Los Angeles, such as gastric bypass, can involve the cutting and repositioning of major organs. This is undoubtedly traumatic for a person's system, increasing the risk of infection and lengthening the recovery process. The Lap Band, however, is an implantable device that is inserted laparascopically and fitted around the stomach; there are no incisions to the stomach or intestines. Second, the Lap Band is both adjustable and removable. Other forms of bariatric surgery can be permanent. Dr. Feiz & Associates are dedicated to offering their patients the most flexible and comfortable path forward to successful weight loss.
Nevertheless, as with any surgery, the Lap Band procedure comes with certain risks. Dr. Feiz and his team of specialists believe strongly in arming their prospective patients with information. If you are curious about getting a Lap Band in Beverly Hills or any one of the other 14 office locations administered by Dr. Feiz & Associates, it would behoove you to contact them directly with questions and concerns.
