Obesity and severe obesity are on the rise all over the Western World. While the media often portrays this condition as just a matter of willpower, those who suffer from obesity know how difficult it is to lose weight fast enough to prevent serious illnesses. Many obese patients have tried diet and exercise, but have found themselves unable to keep the weight off long-term, even rebounding and gaining more weight than they had before. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates know that their patients need help maintaining a healthy weight in the long term, so they offer Lap Band, gastric sleeve, band to sleeve revision, and other bariatric surgery procedures to help their patients reduce or prevent comorbid diseases and enjoy their lives again.
During your first appointment, Dr. Feiz and his team will create a care plan that includes not only weight loss surgery, but changes to diet and exercise to create sustainable weight loss over years. He will discuss many bariatric surgery options, with a focus on the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve procedures. These procedures are the two most popular types of weight loss surgery right now, because they are less invasive than older procedures, which allow patients to recover more quickly and begin their healthy, happy new lives.
