Experts in Sleeve Gastrectomy After Lap Band
When a person is severely obese, they must lose weight quickly to avoid, or reduce the impact of, comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and even depression. If you qualify medically as severely obese, then Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, can help. He founded Dr. Feiz & Associates so that people just like you could find the right weight loss surgery to fit their very particular needs. Dr. Feiz is one of the leading weight loss specialists on the West Coast, specializing in all types pf bariatric procedures like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and even band to sleeve revision.
Dr. Feiz works closely with each individual patient to make sure they receive the care and information they need to make the best decision. However, he knows that not every bariatric specialist will do the same, so Dr. Feiz also became a leading specialist in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. This procedure removes Lap Bands that have been installed incorrectly, which have eroded over time, or which have failed to produce the right kind of results. In this procedure, Dr. Feiz removes the original Lap Band, and then reduces the size of the stomach through the gastric sleeve procedure. This creates a permanently smaller stomach, which can help the person continue to lose weight after the surgery.
Whether you need a revision procedure, or you are interested in your bariatric surgery options, Dr. Feiz & Associates can help.
