If you need to lose weight due to obesity-related medical conditions, you likely know how hard it is for diet and exercise alone to get you to your goal weight. Many patients find they need weight loss surgery, but that step can be intimidating to a lot of us. The good news is that Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his skilled team of weight loss surgery professionals have the years of training and practice, not to mention success stories, which you can trust. Whether you need Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz and Associates are here for you.
Dr. Feiz and Associates offer regular free seminars to help answer patients’ questions, especially the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve procedures. Both of these options are minimally-invasive, but sleeve gastrectomy permanently removes part of the stomach which may help with additional hormonal benefit. Every patient is different, so we will also talk with you during your initial consultation about the best procedure to help you quickly and easily lose weight, in conjunction with changes to diet and exercise.
In some very rare cases, patients who have undergone Lap Band procedures do not lose weight as rapidly as they need to. Dr. Feiz and his team specialize in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, so these patients can get back on track to reach their goal weight. It is important to be healthy in order to fully enjoy your life, and everyone at Dr. Feiz and Associates wants you to live the best life you can.
