Mother and Two Daughters' Lives Transformed by Same-Day Weight Loss Surgery! Stunning Gastric Sleeve Surgery Video Premieres on TV's "The Doctors" 2/24

Crystal Colone entrusts the lives of herself and daughters Candra and Clarissa to bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz - all on the same day; the results are spectacular

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On a single day in 2013, renowned weight loss specialist Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. operated on mother Crystal Colone and her two daughters at Marina Del Rey Hospital, remaking three lives within the span of a few short hours. That amazing day will be documented on TV's "The Doctors" on Monday, February 24, with an astonishing gastric sleeve surgery video that has already generated considerable buzz. Daughters Candra, 19, and Clarissa, 20, underwent the gastric sleeve procedure. Crystal, 34, underwent the lap band revision to gastric sleeve. The results have been spectacular. 

As of this writing, Candra and Clarissa have collectively lost more than 125 pounds. Crystal is now finally at her ideal weight after years of disappointment and distress following an earlier failed procedure performed by another surgeon. All three women are looking forward to vastly more healthy and fulfilled lives thanks to Dr. Feiz's minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.

Like their mom, both Clarissa and Candra had been struggling with morbid obesity for years without any real success. The sisters endured multiple physical problems ranging from such vascular issues as severe sleep apnea and asthma – making proper sleep and exercise all but impossible – to hypertension and pre-diabetes. Both young women had also experienced intense bullying, leading Candra to opt for home-schooling during middle school and high school, while Clarissa responded with sometimes aggressive behavior.

Meanwhile, the lap band surgery Crystal received from another physician in 2006 had produced gastric distress and disappointing results. By 2013, the post-operative issues had worsened to the point where a medical intervention was definitely required. Dr. Feiz suggested converting the unsuccessful operation into a gastric sleeve procedure, an operation that has produced reliable results for countless patients.

As of this writing, daughters Candra and Clarissa are feeling better and far more energetic than ever as both are now able to exercise and sleep properly, while their blood pressure and blood sugar issues have been completely reversed. They've also become far more socially active. Clarissa has started a serious relationship with her new boyfriend, while Candra looks forward to perhaps wearing a bikini this summer.

After overcoming some initial surgical side-effects following the new surgery, 5'5" Crystal has also experienced spectacular results and is now 90 pounds lighter than her initial pre-surgical weight of 250 pounds. Largely thanks to her improved health and motivation, the longtime working mother has been able to acquire a new job at double her prior rate of pay.

The Colones and Dr. Feiz are proud and extremely excited that millions of viewers will have the opportunity to learn about their weight loss procedures because of the episode of "The Doctors" that premieres on February 24th. They hope that even more people will discover how they can escape the trap of obesity and begin new lives thanks to today's highly advanced and very safe surgical procedures.

As Southern California's best known and most respected bariatric surgeon, Dr. Feiz regularly performs such procedures as sleeve gastrectomy in Bakersfield, Beverly Hills, Valencia, Rancho Cucamonga, Huntington Beach and throughout Southern California.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
