Discover Your Healthy Self with Weight Loss Surgery
Obesity leads to many serious health issues, referred to by clinicians as comorbid diseases. These health problems range from high blood pressure and high cholesterol to Type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer. To become healthy again, severely obese people must reach a healthy weight– and too often, diet and exercise are not enough to lose the weight once and for all. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his skilled bariatric surgery team at Dr. Feiz and Associates want to answer your questions about Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or even band to sleeve revision surgery. We want to help you get on the right track to a healthy life.
Many patients come to our offices with questions about the differences of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve procedures. Because all bodies are different, Dr. Feiz will talk with you about the best surgical options for weight loss and your preferences. In addition, if you’ve undergone a Lap Band procedure with another doctor and wish to have that surgery changed to gastric sleeve for any reason, Dr. Feiz and his team of bariatric specialists can help you with a revision surgery – a procedure in which the Lap Band is removed, and the stomach is permanently reduced in size through the sleeve procedure.
If you know you need to lose weight for medical reasons, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Feiz and Associates today. We want you to get your health back, which is why we are glad to answer your questions regarding bariatric surgery procedures, especially Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. We regularly offer free seminars on our weight loss surgery options, as well.
