Dr. Monali Misra Provides Individuals with Life Changing Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sleeve gastrectomy surgery is being lauded as one of the most viable weight loss procedures for individuals who have a BMI of 35 or higher. In the procedure, the surgeon cuts and removes a substantial portion of the lower stomach, resulting in a stomach that's roughly the size of a banana. With this reduced stomach size, the patient gets full off smaller food intake and has a reduced appetite due to a drop in hunger-causing hormone levels. While there are many bariatric surgeons who perform this procedure in Los Angeles, few have the expertise and experience of Dr. Monali Misra.

A transplant to LA from Canada, Dr. Misra is now part of Dr. Michael Feiz's respected team of dedicated bariatric surgeons who consistently provide patients with life-changing results. A combination of education, experience, and passion has distinguished Dr. Misra as a premier weight loss surgeon for sleeve gastrectomies, as well as Lap Band in Los Angeles and gastric bypass procedures. Since 2005, Dr. Misra has performed thousands of minimally invasive and bariatric procedures, as well as taught advanced surgery courses for residents, fellows, and other surgeons. In terms of professional affiliations, Dr. Misra is a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. She is also currently a member of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and Canadian Medical Protective Association. A sincere passion for helping individuals overcome their excess weight issues is evident in her wealth of peer reviewed publications and ongoing involvement in the field of bariatric surgery in all facets, whether it's through doing research, operating on patients, or lecturing at professional gatherings and educational institutions.

The experience and passionate care the team at Dr. Feiz and Associates provides is unmatched, designating the offices of Dr. Feiz as the bariatric center of choice for men and women who seek weight loss in Los Angeles with the Lap Band, gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy procedures. Undergoing a weight loss procedure allows patients to add 20 years to their lives, as well as relieve hazardous co-morbidities such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, and obstructive sleep apnea within 6-12 months after surgery.
