Weight loss surgery has become a much discussed topic in popular culture today and for good reason: it’s the only method of weight loss proven to offer consistently effective results for someone suffering from severe obesity. For the severely obese, other methods such as diet and exercise fail to yield a healthy weight 99% of the time. Severe obesity is a disease, and at Dr. Feiz and Associates, we treat it as such. The associated health risks, including heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and cancer are life threatening, and demand immediate attention. Here at Dr. Feiz and Associates, Dr. Michael Feiz and his committed medical team provide a solution in safe and effective bariatric surgeries.
If you’re ready to consider your options for a bariatric procedure, Dr. Feiz and Associates is the ideal place to start. As leaders in the field of bariatric procedures, we pride ourselves in being able to share our expert knowledge in addition to providing world class treatment. Most patients pursuing weight loss surgery inquire about the difference between the Lap Band vs. sleeve procedures. Though both procedures offer the same results, the former (Lap Band) involves placing a band over the stomach which can be adjusted or removed while the latter (gastric sleeve) is a permanent operation that involves removing and reshaping a portion of the stomach. After consulting with an expert physician like Dr. Feiz, you’ll be able to weigh out the advantages, and find the procedure that’s right for you. Dr. Feiz also performs lap band revision surgery for prior bariatric patients. In addition, if you’re experiencing issues with your lap band, our band to sleeve procedure can get you the positive results you’re looking for.
