A recent study points to the incredible health benefits of bariatric surgery, leading many to discover the incredible weight loss solutions offered at Dr. Feiz & Associates.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At Dr. Feiz & Associates, reports of the incredible benefits of weight loss surgery come as no surprise. In fact, Dr. Feiz and his dedicated medical staff have provided life-changing weight loss surgery in Marina Del Rey, Beverly Hills, Oxnard, and other regions throughout Southern California. Further still, due to his incredible results in performing procedures like sleeve gastrectomy, and even the complex lap band revision surgery, the reputation of the brilliant surgeon has spread across the globe.

Yet, any opportunity to share the benefits of bariatric treatment with a larger audience is a great thing, which is why those at Dr. Feiz & Associates were thrilled to learn of the very encouraging results of a study into weight loss surgery. Last month, Yahoo! News reported that bariatric surgery results in "substantial weight loss and can turn back some diseases related to obesity".

In the study, researchers reviewed the results of over 161,000 bariatric surgery patients. They found that between 86 and 92% of patients suffering from diabetes experienced remission of the disease, while 75% of individuals with high blood pressure found similarly positive results. Further still, some patients that suffer from high cholesterol and heart disease saw marked decreases, and sleep apnea substantially improved or disappeared in a stunning 90% of those who had struggled with the condition prior to their surgery.

"Weight loss surgery provides substantial effects on weight loss and improves obesity-related conditions in the majority of bariatric patients," said Su-Hsin Chang, Instructor with the Division of Public Health Sciences, Department of Surgery at the Washington University School of Medicine, and leader of the study.

Despite the impressive results, Chang acknowledges that "risks of complication, reoperation and mortality" do exist, a fact that only reinforces the importance of undergoing treatment from a truly experienced, highly skilled surgeon like Dr. Feiz. In fact, despite performing countless bariatric surgeries and other weight loss procedures, the meticulous, empathetic Dr. Feiz boasts a mortality rate of zero – a fact that provides great deal relief to those who come to him looking to improve their health.
