LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beverly Hills Physicians is dedicated to making its patients the happiest, healthiest, and most attractive people they can be. For morbidly obese people who have been trying to lose weight through traditional means without lasting success, health and happiness can seem like the most elusive of goals. That's why this acclaimed medical group offers its patients the services of some of the finest practitioners of bariatric medicine working anywhere. Beverly Hills Physicians knows from the experiences of many grateful patients that a sleeve gastrectomy, a laparoscopic band, or a gastric bypass performed by a highly experienced bariatric surgeon can transform – and save — lives.
Since we all have differing needs and priorities, Beverly Hills Physicians offers the full range of weight loss procedures so that patients can take advantage of the option that best suits their needs. A sleeve gastrectomy surgery is a very widely used and highly effective procedure that is less invasive than other operations, while still greatly reducing the capacity of the stomach. Because they are reversible, lap band operations, using tiny laparoscopic cameras to tie off a portion of the stomach, are another popular less invasive choice. Rou-n-Y gastric bypasses are also available for patients desiring one of the oldest and most reliable weight loss procedures. Beverly Hills Physicians also offers revision weight loss surgery for patients who are dealing with the difficult follow-up period after a bariatric procedure performed elsewhere has gone wrong.
For many, bariatric surgery offers the first truly effective lifeline to people who are stuck in a vicious cycle of weight gain, followed by guilt, low self-esteem, and depression — which only leads to the kind of poor health habits that cause further weight gain. At the same time, losing weight by any means is a complex process that involves the entire body. That's why Beverly Hills Physicians is also proud to offer the services of some of our area's finest internist/gastroenterologists as well as outstanding nutritionists and psychologists who specialize in working with bariatric patients.
