As Seen on TV's "The Doctors," Renowned Bariatric Surgeon Transforms the Lives of an Entire Family!

Dr. Michael Feiz shows host Dr. Travis Stork how his innovative procedures gave a mother and two daughters a happier, healthier new life - all in a single afternoon!

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The February 24th episode of TV's "The Doctors" showed millions of viewers something truly extraordinary: the lives of a mother and two daughters being forever transformed, right before their eyes. Following a riveting gastric sleeve surgery video, leading weight loss specialist Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. explained to an impressed Dr. Travis Stork how his use of innovative techniques allowed him to flawlessly perform the most effective procedure available on three patients. In a few short hours, the obesity that had plagued mother Crystal Colone, 34, and daughters Candra, 19, and Clarissa, 20, began to become a thing of the past.

The segment was highlighted by an astonishing video of Dr. Feiz confidently using his renowned skill to perform the procedure through the use of a tiny laparoscopic camera projecting images on a flat screen television. As the TV audience was treated to the fascinating sight of the stomach being reshaped and drastically reduced in size via remote-controlled instruments while as the doctor seamlessly prevented any and all complications, Dr. Feiz carefully and clearly explained his choice of the sleeve vs. lap band and other procedures.

The doctor discussed the benefits of gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Stork, specifically, how it fights obesity in two distinct ways. First, it reduces the capacity of the stomach while preserving its basic functioning. Second, and perhaps even more importantly, the sleeve procedure drastically reduces the produces the production of ghrelin, a hormone notorious for sending persistent nagging hunger signals to the brain and making permanent weight loss vastly more difficult.

From severe knee and back pain to diabetes and depression, the Colone family had been beset by a host of obesity-related illnesses that were threatening their lives on every level prior to surgery. As the Colones walked on "The Doctors" stage before a nationwide audience, however, the change for the better was beyond obvious. In outstanding shape, gorgeous, and clearly having the time of their lives, Crystal, Candra and Clarissa Colone were clearly delighted with the results of the gastric sleeve procedure they had received from Dr. Feiz at Los Angeles's Marina Del Rey Hospital.

As Dr. Feiz and Dr. Stork agreed during the segment, bariatric surgery is not a magic wand against obesity, nor is it for everyone. They believe strongly that surgery should be seen as the beginning, not the end, of a lifelong process of improved dietary and exercise habits. Fortunately, it was obvious from the bright smiles and self-assured demeanor of the Colone family that they are well on the way to a vastly improved life without the threat of obesity.  

The Colones are only three of the patients who are extraordinarily grateful to Dr. Feiz, the nation's most respected weight loss specialist. Dr. Feiz is helping countless people throughout Southern California with procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy surgery. Bakersfield, Inland Empire, Orange and Los Angeles County residents who are seriously interested in weight loss surgery should call (800) 868-5946 today or visit www.DrFeiz.com for further details and information on attending a free seminar.
