For many people struggling with obesity, comorbid diseases make the fight harder. When a person is considered obese, reaching a healthy weight can be an everyday fight; when diabetes, heart disease, and even depression are caused by being severely obese, the person may not have the energy to keep up the struggle. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients with a BMI of 40 or greater, or who have comorbid diseases and a BMI of 35 or greater. He and his caring team know that their patients have struggled for too long with extra weight, and need to get healthy again. That’s why Dr. Feiz educates patients on the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, along with other bariatric procedures – he wants his patients to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
Did you know that comorbid diseases like diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, fertility problems, and emotional problems like depression can often be reduced or even all but eliminated when a patient reaches a healthy weight? Numerous studies have shown that bariatric procedures can help obese and severely obese people reach a healthy weight, which in turn dramatically reduces, and sometimes even resolves, these conditions. This is why Dr. Feiz is so passionate about helping obese and severely obese patients – he offers highly specialized procedures like needlescopic gastric sleeve surgery and Lap Band revision surgery because he wants his patients to have every chance of becoming healthy again.
If you need gastric sleeve after Lap Band revision, or just need more information to make the best possible decision for your weight loss experience, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
