LOS ANGELES, Sept. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The record of achievement Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz is having with his weight loss surgeries is generating a great deal of interest from medical experts. However, people might be forgiven if they greet some important, but also very unsurprising, medical news stories with a shrug. One recent study published in the official journal of the American Cancer Society found that obese women suffering from certain types of breast cancer were more likely to die from the illness or suffer a recurrence. Another study, this one published in Neurology Today, showed that obesity in middle age could increase the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia later in life.
The fact of the matter is that none of the news about the risks of obesity comes as any kind of shock. The reality that obesity is very unhealthy in a large number of ways has been very well established for quite a long time. The difficulty has come in deciding what to do about it, since diet and exercise have proven insufficient for so many people.
The next step is for all of us to look into what we can do about it and, if appropriate, look into the possibility of weight loss surgery with an outstanding leading edge physician like Dr. Michael Feiz. While not all seriously overweight people are candidates for gastric bypass or other weight loss surgeries, the benefits of losing weight – and the often dire consequences of serious obesity – may justify surgery in very many cases.
If significantly obese people have made serious efforts to reduce their weight through traditional means but have failed to achieve success, they need to come to grips with the reality that there may be few options to improve their health aside from bariatric surgery. The good news is that a number of new surgical options, such as the gastric sleeve and lap band, have been introduced over recent years that have reduced the invasiveness of operations while improving their effectiveness.
Dr. Feiz has championed a number of these new and exciting approaches. Because of these leading edge techniques, patients who might otherwise have never seriously considered a surgical approach to weight loss are becoming dramatically slimmer – and staying that way. Thanks to the highly acclaimed work of Dr. Feiz and his highly skilled medical staff, people who could never imagine themselves as anything but morbidly obese and who were forced to live a highly restricted lifestyle on account of their weight, are now living healthy and active lives.
While lap band surgery remains among the most popular and effective of the newer surgical approaches, it is just one of a number of outstanding techniques. For people who are considering the various surgical options, one of the best suggestions is to take advantage of a free consultation with Dr. Feiz. The doctor, who boasts a zero mortality rate, has been praised by his patients for his sensitive and compassionate approach and his clarity in discussion the options that are open to obese patients.
