You’ve been diagnosed as severely obese. You must lose weight to avoid type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, heart disease and numerous other problems. But changing your diet and exercise routines is not enough. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates are here to help you. Dr. Feiz has extensive knowledge of the benefits of Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and even band to sleeve revision surgeries. He wants to discuss bariatric surgery with you so you can reach your weight loss goals.
Dr. Feiz and his team know that weight loss is a sensitive subject, and undergoing surgery can seem frightening and extreme. However, Dr. Feiz’s patients have had great success reaching healthy weights through Lap Band or sleeve gastrectomy procedures. By discussing the ups and downs of Lap Band vs. sleeve procedures, Dr. Feiz can help you make the best choice to lose weight and regain your quality of life.
Sometimes, patients undergo the Lap Band procedure, but do not reach their goal weight. Dr. Feiz also offers Lap Band revision surgery for patients who need to lose weight faster. Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most popular and effective forms of weight loss surgery today, with 60% of patients choosing sleeve gastrectomy over more invasive gastric bypass. Surgeons prefer gastric sleeve procedures, too, because the surgery is less invasive. By keeping part of the stomach in place, gastric sleeve allows better digestion and vitamin absorption, so there are fewer complications in the years after surgery.
