Bariatric Surgery Tailored to You
Too many obese individuals struggle with losing enough weight to get healthy, and then keep that weight off. Often, these people will lose a few pounds, but then their weight will rebound – not only will they regain the weight they lost, they’re likely to add a few pounds in the bargain. For people who are obese or severely obese, this rebound weight can make health problem more serious and cause them to feel worse about themselves and their lives. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates understand this struggle and are here to help. Dr. Feiz specializes in weight loss surgeries including Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy at his Los Angeles clinic and he is known for providing the highest level of care.
Dr. Feiz is widely regarded as one of the leading weight loss surgeons in the U.S. He works with each of his patients as individuals, giving them detailed information about the best weight loss surgery options so they can make an informed decision tailored to their specific health situation. Dr. Feiz also specializes in revision surgery, which is typically sleeve gastrectomy after lap band removal. Although most Lap Band patients experience success with this procedure, in some rare cases, the individual does not lose as much weight as they need to. Sometimes, another surgeon can place the band improperly, so it slips or causes pain and acid reflux. Dr. Feiz has the expertise to help his patients by removing the band, then performing sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure helps the patient continue to lose weight and get healthier.
