Over half of the adult population in the US is overweight or obese. For many people, the solution is to create a plan of eating healthy foods and starting to exercise. For others, however, losing weight means yo-yoing back and forth: losing weight, regaining the lost weight, fighting to lose it again. This is an unhealthy pattern, especially for people who are obese or severely obese. These patients must find a way to keep the weight off or suffer comorbid diseases, which is why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates. He has extensive knowledge and experience with weight loss surgery, like Lap Band revision surgery, that helps his patients lose weight quickly and keep it off for a lifetime.
When patients first consult with Dr. Feiz, they may not know the benefits of two of the most popular bariatric surgeries, Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy. Dr. Feiz is very patient-focused, and he knows that the first step to getting healthy is to get educated. He will discuss the benefits of these and perhaps other weight loss surgeries with his patients so they can make an informed decision that is best for their own health. He and his team will make sure each patient is well cared for before, during, and after weight loss surgery, so they experience the best outcomes.
If you need a band to sleeve revision surgery, or simply have questions about your weight loss options if you suffer from obesity, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today for help.
