Renowned Los Angeles Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz Named A Fellow Of The American College Of Surgeons

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As an acknowledged master of weight loss surgery and a pioneer of such less invasive procedures as the gastric sleeve, respected bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz has helped innumerable Southern Californians and people from all over the world to reclaim the health and happiness they deserve. Now, Dr. Feiz has been accepted as a fellow of the highly prestigious American College of Surgeons. His entry into the organization's ranks allows the doctor to add the designation "F.A.C.S." after his name, alongside "M.D." Receiving this designation indicates that the physician has attained an extremely high level of documented skill and has maintained a high level of ethical practice.

Dr. Feiz's acceptance into the organization is recognition of his demonstrated level of achievement on an enormous range of weight-loss related procedures. He has performed innumerable sleeve gastrectomy, lap band and other innovative procedures. The surgeon has been praised not only for his high level of success, but for his sensitive approach in discussing the often touchy issues that accompany obesity and weight loss surgery. He has also been on the leading edge of approaches to weight loss, and he has been advocating further study of the ghrelin hormone, which is believed to be responsible for the nearly irresistible urges that cause overeating.

An applicant for Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons must be a graduate of an approved medical school; must have completed advanced training in one of the 14 surgical specialties recognized by the College; must possess certification by an American surgical specialty board; and must have been in practice in the same geographic location for at least one year at the time of his or her application.  Before admission into Fellowship, the surgeon must further demonstrate ethical fitness and professional proficiency, and his or her acceptance as a Fellow of the College must be approved by three-fourths of its Board of Regents.
