Excellence in Lap Band Revision Surgery
Although many Americans say they need to lose weight, for most, changes to lifestyle like diet and exercise are enough to shed extra pounds – at least in theory. For people who are severely obese, however, losing a lot of weight in a timely manner is the best way to prevent comorbid diseases, and extend their lives, but it’s a very tall order and often close to impossible. Fortunately, if you have a BMI of 40 or greater or 35 or greater with related health problems, you may qualify for weight loss surgery like Lap Band, or gastric sleeve after Lap Band. Yes, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help severely obese patients just like you.
Dr. Feiz is one of the leading bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, and his knowledgeable, compassionate team helps support every patient he works with before and after their procedure. Dr. Feiz is also one of the finest weight loss surgeons there is for a Lap Band revision surgery. Although it is rare, sometimes less experienced surgeons place the Lap Band in the wrong place, or leave it too tight or too loose. This can cause all kinds of problems, including erosion and an inability to lose weight. Dr. Feiz can remove the band, and for when appropriate, he can also perform a gastric sleeve after Lap Band, which helps patients continue to lose weight and begin a happier and healthier new life.
If you have questions about the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, or want to anything else related to surgical weight loss, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
