Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is one of the most trusted and respected names in weight loss surgery in the Southern California area. He has achieved this reputation by not only being one of the best surgeons in the industry, but also by making his focus about patient care and comfort. He maintains high levels of care and comfort for his patients by making sure they are fully informed about their procedure, keeping a calming environment in his practice, and hiring one of the most meticulous and empathetic staffs imaginable.
In terms of specific surgeries, Dr. Feiz & Associates offers a full range of weight loss operations, including everything from the Lap Band to a sleeve gastrectomy. Dr. Feiz likes to take his time with patients when describing the pros and cons of the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve and does everything in his power to make sure they understand the nuances of each operation. Band to sleeve revision surgery is also available from Dr. Feiz, and is an excellent way for those who have had a Lap Band surgery to completely change their weight loss strategy. In this case, Dr. Feiz removes the original Lap Band, and performs a gastric sleeve operation, which leaves the patient with only a portion of their original stomach. This, of course, diminishes appetite due to both the smaller stomach and some important hormonal benefits, and as a result, typically aids in achieving significant and long-lasting weight loss.
Ultimately, regardless of the weight loss operation you may be looking for, whether it’s a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band operation or just an initial Lap Band, Dr. Feiz and his incredibly caring staff can help. They not only have an amazing surgical record, but also a firm dedication to delivering top-tier patient care.
