Bariatric Surgery: New Hope for Those Struggling with Obesity, Say Dr. Feiz & Associates

Weight loss surgery is now mainstream, and patients are reaping the benefits

Los Angeles, CA  (  In the past, weight loss surgery has been demeaned as some sort of “easy way out” for people who aren’t willing to put in the hard work of dieting and exercise. Nothing could be further from the truth. At Dr. Feiz & Associates, a prestigious weight loss surgery center in Beverly Hills, CA, Dr. Michael Feiz has consulted with patients from every walk of life, and he can attest to the fact that most of them have spent years trying traditional diet and exercise methods, to no avail. As the media shines a greater spotlight on America’s growing obesity problem, it’s becoming increasingly evident that there is more to these people’s stories than mere laziness or lack of effort.

Today, more physicians are recommending that their patients consider a surgical approach to weight loss. Why? In part because evidence is piling up that concludes there are vital health benefits to bariatric surgery. Recent studies have concluded that some of these procedures can actually have more of an impact on so-called co-morbidities (obesity-related conditions such as hypertension and Type 2 diabetes) than traditional approaches. Indeed, many patients who undergo such operations see their diabetes go into remission, allowing them to completely get off their medication.

There is no one-size-fits-all operation. Dr. Feiz offers a number of different operations, ranging from gastric bypass to gastric sleeve and Lap Band surgery, and he carefully consults with each individual patient before offering his recommendation on the best course of action for them. His personalized approach to patient care has won him the respect of his peers in the surgical community and, more importantly to him and his team, the eternal gratitude of those patients whose lives he has changed forever.

Of course, bariatric surgery is not a silver bullet. Patients must be willing to make a long-term commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Fortunately, this is not a road that patients need to travel on their own. Dr. Feiz helps patients connect with a nutritionist, and stays personally involved in the patient’s continuing efforts to keep off those pounds.
