Dr. Feiz explains that these types of conferences show the medical community at its best. When doctors work together to analyze, scrutinize, or discuss the modern medical procedures of the day, all people benefit.

Los Angeles bariatric surgeon Michael Feiz M.D., F.A.C.S. is proud to announce that, as part of the 32nd ASMBS Annual Meeting at Obesity Week 2015, which is taking place November 2-6 in Los Angeles, CA, he has been chosen as one of the top surgeons from around the world to perform live surgeries that will then be discussed and analyzed by expert panelists for the benefit of medical students, residents, and various health professionals. To demonstrate a revolutionary new type of sleeve gastrectomy, Dr. Feiz will perform a Needlescopic Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure on November 2nd. While the primary purpose of the procedure is obviously to help the patient in question successfully achieve weight loss results, the professional demonstration and subsequent discussion of an important innovation in bariatric surgery will surely be amplified by the lessons learned and later implemented by those in attendance.

Dr. Feiz explains that the sleeve gastrectomy in general is the fastest growing subcategory of weight loss surgery, and is quickly becoming the preferred choice of doctors and patients, due to its unmatched ability to balance the risks with the results. He explains that it has a lower risk of complications compared to the gastric bypass procedure, while delivering greater overall weight loss results than the Lap Band procedure. Yet, he explains that the Needlescopic approach is special in that it allows patients to benefit from all that is great about the gastric sleeve, while resulting in far less scarring than nearly any bariatric procedure utilized today. The procedure accomplishes this by using advanced, more compact laparoscopic tools that allow the doctor to make an incision as small as 3 millimeters, compared to 10 millimeters in many standard incisions, while still providing superb control of the instruments. Put simply, smaller incisions mean less noticeable scars, which Dr. Feiz notes can be further minimized by appropriate placement considerations made by the surgeon

In praising the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and other organizations involved in the 2015 Obesity week events, Dr. Feiz explains that these types of conferences show the medical community at its best. When doctors work together to analyze, scrutinize, or discuss the modern medical procedures of the day, all people benefit.
