If you are severely obese, you may have begun to develop comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, or joint pain. You may have trouble sleeping, or you feel consistently short of breath. Obese people with these conditions can lose many years of their lives and the years they do have may be a lot more difficult, even painful. Get that time back, and get your health back, with the help of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Feiz is one of the leading weight loss surgeons on the West Coast, and he has gathered a team of experts at Dr. Feiz & Associates to help support his patients before, during, and after band to sleeve revision, or other bariatric procedures.
Dr. Feiz is not just one of the most trained and experienced bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, he is also one of the most widely respected experts in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. This procedure helps patients who need to continue their weight loss journey, but whose Lap Bands have stopped working well for them. Sometimes, a band may fail due to shifting, getting too loose, or getting tighter. This can cause discomfort, acid reflux, or pain. It can also prevent you from reaching your goal weight. However, for qualifying patients, Dr. Feiz can remove the Lap Band, then perform a sleeve gastrectomy.
At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we know how important your weight loss journey is. We are the leading experts in sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients just like you recommend to others. Contact us today for your first appointment.
