    WEDNESDAY, April 23, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The deaths of well-known people offer an opportunity to educate the general public about disease detection and prevention, a new study suggests. Researchers surveyed 1,400 American men and women after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 and learned that more than one-third of them sought information about his cause of death or information about cancer in general soon after his death was reported.

Bariatric treatments from Dr. Feiz remain remarkably effective in combating the disease, benefiting patients throughout Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In California and throughout our society, there is an unfortunate tendency to demonize those who suffer from the disease of severe obesity – despite the fact that modern science has yet to fully understand the epidemic nature of this extremely serious health threat. That's why those who undergo such treatments as sleeve gastrectomy in Carson, Beverly Hills, or elsewhere, often are surprised not only by the stunning results of their procedures, but also by the empathetic treatment they receive  as they take that crucial first step towards truly healthy living. For sleeve gastrectomy, Bakersfield residents and others throughout the state have also come to trust Dr. Feiz & Associates, first and foremost. Led by the incomparable lead surgeon Michael Feiz, MD, FACS, their expert team provides treatments like lap band and sleeve gastrectomy to Lancaster, Huntington Beach and throughout Southern California and Greater Los Angeles with a record of consistent success.

The conventional wisdom on obesity is the same in California as everywhere else. It says that people gain weight by consuming too many calories and expending too few. The National Institute of Health website suggests as much, stating that "the same amount of energy IN and energy OUT over time = weight stays the same." However, the methods that have been designed to fight obesity based on this line of thinking simply haven't worked, leading to gaping holes in our knowledge about what causes obesity, and great frustration among those who seek to shed excess pounds. "We are struggling to figure this out," National Institute of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins admitted in an interview with Newsweek.

If the health policy experts at the NIH are still unable to properly diagnose the reasons for obesity, ordinary people certainly can't be expected to be equipped to fight against the effects of obesity – and no one should ever be criticized for their condition. At the practice of Dr. Feiz & Associates, you'll find a team that is wholly empathetic to the challenges facing those who suffer from obesity, and perhaps most importantly, they are fully capable of providing treatment that actually leads to rapid, safe and sustainable weight loss.

About Dr. Feiz

Before opening his own practice, Dr. Feiz performed his fellowship work at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. There, he received specialized training in Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery. Today, he remains an active member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons. As a pioneer in bariatric surgery, Dr. Feiz is among an elite few surgeons with the highest level of skills and knowledge on the latest minimally invasive procedures, allowing for maximum total weight loss, reduced pain after surgery, minimal scarring, and an exceptionally quick recovery.

Though the world's top medical experts continue to struggle to figure out the causes of obesity, those suffering from the disease can take heart in knowing the hugely respected Dr. Feiz is dedicated to providing world-class surgical treatment to combat the condition.
