Lap band surgery is the most straightforward bariatric surgery available today, and it effectively reduces the capacity of the stomach by implanting an adjustable, silicone gastric band around the upper part of the stomach. Dr. Feiz is an expert in lap band surgery, and patients frequently turn to him for the STARR treatment, which is an acronym for “surgical tiny access and rapid recovery.” The procedure only involves one small incision no larger than a grain of rice. Dr. Feiz is one of the few physicians that offers this treatment for his lap band patients and eligible patients who undergo Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery, as well.
Many patients who are over 100 pounds overweight are not only good candidates for lap band surgery, their insurance covers the procedure as well. Patients who undergo the lap band procedure successfully achieve improved health, renewed energy, as well as an incredible outlook on life. After the surgery, patients have regular follow-up appointments for band adjustments and gradually lose weight as the band is tightened around the stomach, but that’s not all that is done. Patients are encouraged to call Dr. Feiz on his private phone with any questions or concerns they may have about their progress. Dr. Feiz is there for each patient with advice when it comes to eating sensibly and learning to eat an amount of food where they feel comfortable but not stuffed.
