Achieve Your Goal Weight
Although there are people who can cut back how much they eat and exercise a small amount, and successfully lose weight, people who suffer from severe obesity do not have that luxury. People who struggle with being this condition need to lose a large amount of weight to become healthy again, but they are not usually able to keep it off. Typically, they can lose some weight, but then they rebound and too often regain that weight, plus extra pounds. This is dangerous to their physical health and overall well-being, which is why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates. He and his knowledgeable team specialize in many kinds of weight loss surgery, and can help their patients choose the best type of weight loss procedure, such as gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, to help them get healthy.
Many patients choose the Lap Band procedure at first, and Dr. Feiz is one of the leading experts in this type of procedure. A band-like medical device wraps around the stomach, creating a smaller pouch that holds less food but allows the individual to feel full after eating less. While this procedure has proven very successful for many people, Dr. Feiz also specializes in Lap Band revision surgery to help patients who do not sufficiently benefit from this procedure. There are many reasons for this, but Dr. Feiz is one of the leading experts in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, and he can help you.
Whether you need a gastric sleeve after Lap Band, or just have questions about the best weight loss surgery options for you, Dr. Feiz & Associates can help.
