Bariatric surgery could be cost effective even for mildly obese

The Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis released a report that suggests that bariatric surgery is cost-effective for mildly obese patients and the severely obese. By cost-effective, the study means that the price of surgery is much less than the patient's lifetime medical costs due to obesity-related illnesses. A postdoctoral research associate and first author of the study wants to make bariatric procedures, including sleeve gastrectomy surgery, universally available to all obese people.

As more studies and research like this come to light, patients turn to Dr. Feiz & Associates for weight-loss treatments and consultations in Los Angeles. His many proud patients share their glowing testimonials on his site. One woman, who got a lap band in Los Angeles, states it was the "best decision of my life" and that Dr. Feiz is "a great and caring surgeon." He compassionately works with his patients to guide them through this life-changing process. More stories can be read here:
