Commenting on a recent article, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that the case of Lane Sitz, who lost 246 pounds, is unusually dramatic, but his success illustrates that severe obesity can be dealt with thoughtfully applied bariatric surgery.

One patient's weight loss success story highlights the effectiveness of bariatric surgery.

The Los Angeles weight loss surgery center notes that along with a significant weight loss, bariatric surgery enables many patients to change their lifestyles for the better and begin a truly successful weight loss journey.

Formerly severely obese patient Lane Sitz, recounts his weight loss journey after receiving a gastric sleeve procedure and shedding a remarkable 246 pounds in an August 24 article on Alabama Life. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that Sitz’s inspiring success story is remarkable in terms of the large amount of weight he was able to lose, but is nevertheless only one out of a great many personal experiences that demonstrate the effectiveness of the bariatric approach to weight loss. The Los Angeles weight loss surgery center notes that along with a significant weight loss, bariatric surgery enables many patients to change their lifestyles for the better and begin a truly successful weight loss journey. Dr. Feiz & Associates goes on to note that weight loss surgery can provide the majority of patients with a variety of health and wellness benefits, such as:

Cardiovascular Health - Severely obese patients often suffer from heart disease related to their obesity that puts them at a much higher risk of potentially deadly heart attacks and other complications. Excess weight puts a significant amount of strain on a patient’s heart, and obesity is directly related to such issues as high blood pressure, excessive cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes, all of which significantly increase the risk of heart problems and numerous other issues. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that losing weight can help with all of these risks, significantly improve heart function and promote overall health.

Pain Relief - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that excess weight puts constant pressure on the bones and joints of severely obese patients that may cause a significant amount of pain and discomfort for a patient, particularly as they get older and develop osteoarthritis. Moreover, constant bone and joint pain can make even completing simple daily tasks an ordeal for some patients. Weight loss following a bariatric surgery, notes Dr. Feiz & Associates, typically lessens the pressure on joints and in most cases significantly reduces joint pain. The Los Angeles weight loss surgery center notes that improved arthritis following a drastic weight loss allows many patients to pursue more active lifestyles and participate in activities they may have been unable to perform prior to their weight loss.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that bariatric surgery has been shown to dramatically improve the level of patient success in achieving a significant and long lasting weight loss. The Los Angeles bariatric center goes on to note that their team of highly skilled and extremely experienced bariatric experts take the time to answer patient’s questions or address any concerns concerning weight loss surgery.
