First, he starts by noting that living with obesity is harmful to your health. He states:
"Obesity is the leading cause of death, second only to smoking. Weight loss surgery is the only reliable method to effectively lose the weight and live a longer and healthier life."Dr. Feiz then goes on to mention that a bariatric procedure like the lap band or gastric sleeve can effectively cure many diseases that we relate with obesity, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
He then frankly and compassionately discusses the risks of weight loss surgery, which are similar to the risks of any surgery. However, Dr. Feiz has managed to minimize surgical risk at every avenue. This is because he exclusively dedicates himself to being a weight loss surgeon, which has led to him performing over 2000 weight loss procedures with no deaths or major complications. This is also what has led to him being declared a Center of Excellence bariatric surgeon.
