The Scientific Verdict is Clear: Weight Loss Surgery Saves Lives

From curing type 2 diabetes to preventing strokes and heart attacks, to improving people's personal and professional lives, leading surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz has seen bariatric benefits first hand

LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Anyone who has been paying attention to the press coverage of weight loss medicine can't help but notice a growing medical and scientific consensus regarding bariatric surgeries. They work, and they work very well. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is known as perhaps the leading gastric sleeve and lap band surgeon in the Greater Los Angeles area. As such, he has seen the life-changing effect of treatment in many bypass, lap band, and sleeve gastrectomy surgery patients. While there is an ongoing debate regarding lap band vs. gastric sleeve surgery, the positive effects of both treatments appear to be clearer than ever, and include fast, sustained weight loss, and in some cases even an end to the health struggles that come from diabetes.

"Why weight-loss surgery cures diabetes: New clues" read a recent headline in ScienceDaily. The article goes on to detail recent work by scientists at The University of Manchester in regards to weight loss surgery, specifically the reasons why diabetes is cured in the majority of patients that undergo gastric bypass surgery. The research team showed that gut hormone cells previously thought to contain only one hormone had up to six – including the hunger hormone ghrelin.

Of course, at Dr. Feiz & Associates, the removal of ghrelin from the stomach is a fundamental element of the work accomplished by Dr. Feiz and his dedicated team. The ghrelin hormone is instrumental in creating the feelings of hunger that lead to overeating, and by removing it through surgery, Dr. Feiz is able to provide his patients with a comfortable and energizing weight loss experience. While Dr. Feiz has been well aware of the importance of ghrelin for sustained weight loss for some time, this research goes a long way toward informing the public of his invaluable work.

Perhaps even more important than new information regarding ghrelin, the recent research is drawing a clearer connection than ever before to weight loss surgery and relief from diabetes. Study team leader Dr. Craig Smith says "the most common type of gastric bypass actually also bypasses a proportion of the gut hormone cells. It is thought that this causes the gut hormone to change and be reprogrammed. For us, understanding how these cells change in response to surgery is likely to hold the key to a cure for diabetes."

For years, Dr. Feiz has emphasized the health benefits of weight loss that can include alleviating hypertension, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, endocrine disorders and joint problems. That's why he welcomes new scientific research that makes the connection between weight loss and relief from diabetes clearer than ever.
