Rosie O'Donnell puts a Famous Face on Sleeve Gastrectomy, according to Beverly Hills Physicians

When high profile celebrities undergo successful weight loss treatment, it is a reminder of the importance of weight loss surgery at Beverly Hills Physicians.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In Southern California, the network of skilled health and beauty experts at Beverly Hills Physicians are famous for their ability to help obese and overweight patients to reach their health goals through treatments like weight loss surgery. Lap band, sleeve gastrectomy and many other procedures have become increasingly common, thanks in large part to the effective results experienced by so many past BHP patients. With both sleeve gastrectomy and lap band, Encino, Pasadena and Thousand Oaks residents alike frequently experience significant and sustained weight loss; however, one bariatric surgery patient in particular has recently brought the treatment into headlines once again.

The news of Rosie O'Donnell's successful – and life-saving – recent bariatric surgery has brought weight loss treatment into the national spotlight again. NY Daily News reports that O'Donnell revealed that she underwent vertical gastric sleeve surgery in July of last year while speaking at the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Luncheon in Detroit. Since her own treatment, O'Donnell has lost forty pounds.

What inspired the famously friendly comic, host and actress to enhance her health through bariatric surgery? "I did it to save my life," O'Donnell told the crowd in Detroit. In 2012, O'Donnell suffered a severe type of heart attack that is notorious for its often fatal effects. After her heart attack, she made the decision to adopt a number of lifestyle changes, including a healthier diet, exercise and weight loss surgery, in order to drop below 200 lbs.

The team at Beverly Hills Physicians understands why O'Donnell felt the need to undergo weight loss treatment, as it has proven to be very effective in lessening reducing the risk of ailments like diabetes and heart disease. Their medical specialists bring a comprehensive approach to healthy, positive living that the renowned medical professionals at BHP bring to every patient they treat – for weight loss, and other ailments that stand in the way of achieving one's goals. While the surgical skill of BHP's team is unparalleled, it is their dedication to wellness and beauty at every stage of life that makes their treatment so effective and long-lasting.    

For decades, Beverly Hills Physicians has been one of the largest networks of health and beauty providers as well as wellness experts in Southern California. Each surgeon at BHP is highly trained and board certified, and their facilities are both state-of-the-art and luxuriously spa-like, ensuring each patient receives truly world-class treatment.

Rosie O'Donnell's weight loss story gives a famous face to the life-changing success that thousands of patients have found through the type of bariatric treatment performed by Beverly Hills Physicians surgeons. Yet, it is also a reminder that surgery is only one of many measures that can be taken to ensure successful – and sustainable weight loss. With a healthy diet, regular physical activity and treatment from the health, beauty and wellness professionals at BHP, you can look and feel your best, and enjoy all the joys that life has to offer.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed.

If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
