If you have been diagnosed as severely obese, you know how important it is to lose weight. Unfortunately, many obese patients struggle with losing weight in what seems like a never-ending battle. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates: his focus on his patients, his extensive training, and his years of experience help him perform successful weight loss surgeries, such as band to sleeve revision, and ensure that his patients lose the weight they need.
As one of the leading bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, Dr. Feiz focuses on educating his patients about their procedures. Many patients come to him without knowing the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, and patients must have accurate information in order to make the right choice for their bodies. Dr. Feiz will work with patients from their very first appointment to educate them on all their options, and guide them to the best solution.
Dr. Feiz also works with patients who are interested in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. While it is fairly rare for patients to need or want another procedure after receiving the Lap Band, there are some instances where it is necessary. The band may be highly problematic, or the patient may not be shedding pounds as fast as they want. Dr. Feiz will gladly consult with these patients on the procedure, or any other weight loss surgery they are interested in. Please contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today to schedule your first appointment. We look forward to helping you.
