There are numerous downsides to dealing with severe obesity. They range between everything from discomfort to displeasure with your appearance to a higher chance of developing diabetes. And, of course, in many cases, there is severe joint and bone pain. If you or a loved one is severely overweight, and dealing with joint and bone pain that’s keeping you from enjoying your life, you should contact Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates. Dr. Feiz has decades of experience in the world of weight loss surgery, and has made it his goal to make sure he delivers the best possible results and care for his patients.
From the start of your weight loss journey, the team at Dr. Feiz & Associates will be there to guide you. They’ll help you with the difficult decision that arises when considering the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, and will make sure you pick the option that’s best for your specific health needs and fitness goals. And, for those who have had a Lap Band surgery in the past, but aren’t fully satisfied with their results for some reason, Dr. Feiz also offers Lap Band revision surgery that can remedy most, if not all of the downsides of the original operation. There is huge upside potential for this surgery because it replaces the Lap Band with the gastric sleeve, which is often times a more comfortable and effective method of decreasing appetite. Ultimately, whether you want a Lap Band operation or a band to sleeve revision, you’ll want a consultation from Dr. Michael Feiz.
