In terms of procedures, Dr. Feiz will help you understand the pros and cons of the decision that arises from the choice between the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy. For those who don’t know, the Lap Band and gastric sleeve surgeries aim to achieve the same goal, weight loss, but go about it in different ways. The Lap Band slows down digestion in the stomach and makes eating too much a great deal less comfortable. The gastric sleeve works by removing a large portion of the stomach. And, while the executions of both methods differ, they’ve both been shown to decrease appetite, and thusly decrease caloric intake and weight gain. When the first procedure fails to supply the needed results, a band to sleeve procedure can very often solve the problem.
The bottom line: if you’re looking for an initial procedure or a Lap Band revision surgery you need look no further than Dr. Feiz & Associates. Not only is Dr. Feiz one of the most trusted and experienced doctors in the Los Angeles area, he also has one of the most effective and empathetic staffs.
