Weight Loss
Program

Dr. Lussier and Town Center Surgery have an affiliation with Dr. Michael Feiz to perform bariatric surgeries. Dr. Feiz is an accomplished bariatric surgeon who has pioneered improved weight loss surgeries.

Dr. Feiz received his medical degree from the School of Medicine at New York Medical College and completed his internship and residency at the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center. He performed his fellowship in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Feiz is fluent in Spanish and Farsi.

Together Dr. Lussier and Dr. Feiz have developed a comprehensive program to help you in your weight loss surgery process every step of the way, from pre-operative counseling to post-operative recovery and follow-up care.

Learn more about the different types of weight loss sugeries and what may work best for you:

Obesity is when your body has too much fat which may lead to lower quality of physical and mental health. Individuals with severe obesity are more likely to suffer from type-2 diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease, osteoarthritis, fatty liver disease, hypertension, acid reflux, cancer, and other medical conditions.

If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30-35, suffer from a medical condition as result of your obesity, and have exhausted all other attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise then you may be a good candidate for weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery. Your candidacy for weight loss surgery will be determined during your consultation.

Bariatric surgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed on the stomach or intestines to induce weight loss. Minimally invasive procedures are performed by making tiny incisions to minimize visible scarring and recovery time. Bariatric surgeries work by restricting the amount of food that you can eat or alter the way food is digested. There are several types of surgical options and one may be more effective than another depending on the individual.

Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive procedure that makes the stomach smaller to help you lose weight. During gastric sleeve surgery, more than half of your stomach is removed, leaving a thin vertical sleeve or tube that is connected to your intestines. There is a hunger hormone called ghrelin that is produced in the stomach which helps you quickly and effectively reduce your hunger. The surgery is minimally invasive and is completed laparoscopically. Due to the removal of part of the stomach, this surgery is not reversible.

Gastric bypass surgery helps you lose weight by changing how your stomach and small intestine handles the food you eat. A small pouch is attached to your intestine in order to bypass the stomach, so as foods no longer go into some parts of your stomach and small intestine you will not absorb the food or the calories resulting in weight loss. The surgery is minimally invasive and is completed laparoscopically.

Some patients may need to undergo revisional weight loss surgery due to complications related to their gastric band or gastric bypass surgery, they fail to lose the desired weight or regain weight, and/or there is erosion or slippage of a gastric band or failure of the staple line for gastric bypass surgery.

Revisional weight loss surgery options include the removal of gastric band (LAP-BAND® System or REALIZE® Band) or conversion to another weight loss treatment such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass surgery. For gastric bypass patients, revisional weight loss options may include adding a gastric band, shrinking the stoma, lengthening the Roux limb or converting to a duodenal switch. To discuss your revisional weight loss surgery options, please contact Town Center Surgery to schedule an appointment.

To find out if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery or need to undergo revisional weight loss surgery due to complications from a previous surgery, please call Town Center Surgery at (661) 260-3021 to schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
