The Heart of Things

At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we are not only simply concerned about helping our patients meet their weight loss goals, we also want to help them improve their overall health and well-being. This is why, when taking into consideration the life-saving benefits of bariatric surgery, we cannot recommend it more to qualified patients who are struggling with severe obesity. Of course, we want you to look your best, and one of the ways to do this is to shed some excess body weight. But few people seem to realize that bariatric surgery can not only improve your life; it can extend it outright.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) notes that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States - even higher than that of cancer and respiratory illnesses. So anyone with severe obesity who has experienced heart failure - or at risk for it - would do well knowing that weight loss surgery procedures such as the gastric sleeve can not only reduce your weight, they can reduce your chances of an untimely end. We don't mean to sound grim by any means, we simply want people to know that living with severe obesity is more than an inconvenience - it's a bona fide way to shorten your life.

Weight loss surgery procedures are the most effective means for people with severe obesity to improve both the quality and length of their lives. If you or a loved one is struggling with severe obesity, don't hesitate to get in contact with us at Dr. Feiz & Associates. It may be one of the most importance decisions you can make.
