In the media, weight loss is often portrayed as simply a matter of finding the will power to eat less and exercise more. For too many people who are severely obese, however, reaching their goal weight through diet changes and exercise does not work as well as it needs to. To avoid serious weight related illnesses, called comorbidities, many severely obese people must lose weight quickly and keep it off for good. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. started Dr. Feiz & Associates so that the best possible weight loss surgery options would be available in Los Angeles, including Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
The team at Dr. Feiz & Associates have years of training and experience to help patients make the best decisions for their health. Many patients come in without even knowing the difference between the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve procedures, and certainly do not know which weight loss surgery might work best for them. Dr. Feiz and his team offer a multidisciplinary approach to weight loss, which includes diet and exercise changes before the surgery, a psychological evaluation, and months of post-surgical care including personal phone calls to make sure the patient’s healing is going as planned.
If you suffer from obesity or severe obesity, weight loss surgery could help you prevent or stop the numerous serious health problems that come from being seriously overweight. Many bariatric surgery patients report that their Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea improve or even go into remission after surgery.
