If you’re looking for an experienced and dedicated weight loss surgeon with a track record that extends over many years, you need look no further than Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. Not only has Dr. Feiz received his training at some of the finest institutions in the nation, he has also dedicated his career to making sure that his practice delivers patient care that goes above and beyond industry standards.
Patients who are even considering a weight loss procedure would benefit from contacting Dr. Feiz, as he can help people to weigh the pros and cons of the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve operations. This is important because while you may be certain that you want a weight loss procedure, you may not be as certain of which route is best for you.
Dr. Feiz can also help those who want a band to sleeve revision operation. This operation is usually called for when somebody is dissatisfied with the results of their original Lap Band operation, and is looking to switch up their strategy in their battle against obesity. For those who don’t know, the sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band surgery works by replacing the Lap Band with a gastric sleeve. This can be an incredibly effective method of increasing weight loss and decreasing discomfort because instead of placing a band around the stomach, a large portion of the stomach is actually removed. Thank to reducing the production of an important hunger producing hormone called ghrelin, this can be extremely effective in lowering appetite, and thusly food consumption and weight gain.
