If you have tried and failed to lose weight, you may have considered weight loss surgery. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates are here to help you make the right decision to reach your goal weight and get healthy again. If your BMI is 40 or more, or you have a BMI of 35 with comorbid diseases like diabetes or heart problems, weight loss surgery with Dr. Feiz & Associates may be right for you.
Losing weight is an important part of being healthy, and Dr. Feiz and his helpful team know that everyone has different experiences with weight loss. For some severely obese patients, weight loss surgery is the best option – but even then, different bodies respond better to different surgeries. Dr. Feiz and his team have years of training and experience with Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and even band to sleeve revision surgery.
There are more weight lose choices today than ever before. Patients often choose the Lap Band procedure because it is reversible and less invasive, but not all patients lose the weight they need to lose with just this procedure. Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, to help patients lose those last stubborn pounds when initial procedures fail to provide the needed results.
The knowledgeable doctors at Dr. Feiz & Associates want to talk to you about the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, and possible band to sleeve revision if necessary in the future. Dr. Feiz and his staff want you to be the best you, and understand that your weight loss journey is unique. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today for a consultation on your weight loss.
