For people who have struggled with obesity and need help overcoming their weight problems, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is one of the most renowned weight loss surgeons in the U.S., with many years of experience performing successful weight loss surgeries. With his practice, Dr. Feiz and Associates, he has gathered an incredible team to help support his patients not only during surgery, but before and after their weight loss procedure as well. Whether a patient is interested in a Lap Band procedure or needs a gastric sleeve after a Lap Band that has failed to produce the desired results. Dr. Feiz and his incredible team are here to help.
Dr. Feiz has performed numerous successful Lap Band procedures, and this is one of the weight loss surgeries that he can offer to patients. However, Dr. Feiz knows that there are some rare cases in which the Lap Band may not work as it is supposed to. Sometimes, another surgeon implants the band incorrectly, either tightening it too much, or not enough so the band slips. This can cause intense pain and digestive issues, among other problems. That’s why Dr. Feiz also often provides Lap Band revision surgery to help these patients who need their bands removed. Often, a patient chooses to have the gastric sleeve performed after their band has been removed, and Dr. Feiz is one of the leading experts in the country for sleeve revision procedures, as well.
Whether you have questions about the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, or need a revision procedure with an expert, Dr. Feiz & Associates are here for you.
