Videos from TV's "The Doctors" Explore How Weight Loss Surgery Improves Lives

Informative videos use an expert's opinion to shed light on bariatric surgery, and how the lives of a mother and her adult daughters were forever changed.

LOS ANGELES, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Those considering bariatric surgery in Southern California may wonder if it is the right choice for them. Board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz knows that while some people have a general idea of weight loss surgery in Marina Del Rey entails, many are still uninformed regarding the details of treatment. Because of Dr. Feiz' expertise on bariatric surgery and his reputation for excellence as a sleeve gastrectomy provider, the acclaimed TV show "The Doctors" featured him and his patients who had undergone sleeve gastrectomy. From Lancaster to Rancho Cucamonga and beyond, Dr. Feiz has made a profound difference in the lives of patients who have battled obesity for years, and he is using his TV exposure to educate people about the valuable benefits of bariatric surgery

As a leading provider of sleeve gastrectomy and lap band in Los Angeles, it should come as no surprise that Dr. Feiz was invited to appear on "The Doctors," a national television show viewed by millions. While there, he showed how his innovative procedures were able to turn his patients' lives around. The three patients who were featured on the show with Dr. Feiz were a mother, 34-year-old Crystal Colone, and her adult daughters - Candra, 19, and Clarissa, 20 - all who suffered from the consequences of living with obesity. Dr. Feiz explained to the show's host, Dr. Travis Stork, that while bariatric surgery is not the best route for every obese person, it can work incredibly well for those who are appropriate candidates and prepared to make permanent lifestyle changes.

The video snippets of "The Doctors" are available online, and feature Dr. Feiz speaking enthusiastically to Dr. Stork about how the procedure that the Colone family received works. This procedure, called sleeve gastrectomy, is effective in multiple ways, and Dr. Feiz described how it works while showing slides illustrating how the procedure alters the anatomy of the digestive system, leading patients to lose weight.

"In the sleeve gastrectomy, we're going to combat obesity in two ways. One, is the size of the stomach is made so much smaller so you have much smaller volume, and feel full with a much smaller amount of food that you eat," Dr. Feiz explained. "But more importantly, and what's really exciting about this operation, is the part of the stomach that is removed has the highest concentration of those cells that release that hormone - "the hunger hormone" - ghrelin…Not only do you eat a lot smaller amount of food, but you have a lot less desire for food, you're not always hungry in-between meals."

The incredible transformation of the Colone family is viewable on "The Doctors" website, and features their impressive weight loss. What's even more apparent is how reinvigorated the women feel, and how appreciative they are towards Dr. Feiz not only for his skillful surgical ability, but his compassionate bedside manner, as well, while coaching them in their weight loss journeys.

If you are interested in weight loss surgery, Dr. Feiz and his team urge you to consider your options to improve your health and change your life.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
