While medical professionals agree that the obesity epidemic is in the U.S. is worse than ever, providing a solution is easier said than done. Diet and exercise work for many people who are overweight, but for severely obese patients, this is very rarely enough to keep the weight off. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates are here to help obese and severely obese patients with weight loss surgeries, such as Lap Band, sleeve gastrectomy, and even band to sleeve revision, so they can lose weight quickly and live a longer, healthier, happier life.
Many patients want to know the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve surgeries, because they don’t have enough information about weight loss surgery. Dr. Feiz will gladly discuss these and more options at his first appointment with new patients, because he wants to ensure the patient makes the best decision for their long-term health and happiness. Moreover, Dr. Feiz is one of the most skilled bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, and his use of leading edge techniques help them recover quickly after their surgical procedure, and begin to overcome comorbid diseases like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and joint stress.
If you need a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, Dr. Feiz has extensive experience with this procedure. While it is rare, some patients do not see the results they want from the Lap Band procedure, and wish to move to a gastric sleeve. Dr. Feiz and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates work closely with each individual patient to make sure they get the weight loss results they want and need.
