The Many Benefits of a Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is one of only a few accomplished bariatric surgeons who are qualified to perform a micro gastric sleeve surgery, employing the single-incision STARR Treatment. Dr. Feiz, who has performed numerous sleeve surgeries and FDA-compliant Lap Band procedures, recommends the STARR Treatment for qualified patients who are concerned about scarring or marks following the operation. Many potential patients are anxious about scars, but with gastric sleeve surgery, those receiving the procedure will only be left with one small mark about the size of a dime, contrasting with the standard laparoscopic method, which only requires a couple small incisions.
With all of the positive feedback from trustworthy medical sources, the gastric sleeve surgery is an excellent choice for the person contemplating a weight-loss procedure. Both young and old people suffering from obesity might be good candidates. The presence of a gastric sleeve may have a positive effect on glucose levels for patients with type 2 diabetes, and the procedure may improve a person’s candidacy for organ transplant. And of course, if you go by the testimonials of Dr. Feiz’s past patients, there is no denying that the gastric sleeve expedites weight loss. The patient will not experience the daily, sometimes hourly, cravings they struggled with prior to their weight loss surgery.
