Get Empowered to Lose Weight
There are many health risks associated with being severely obese. Comorbidities like diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and depression can get worse if the root cause – being very overweight – is not addressed. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help people in Southern California struggling with severely obesity. He knows that his patients have tried repeatedly to lose weight, but failed. That’s why he and his compassionate team specialize in weight loss surgery procedures like Lap Band revision surgery.
Dr. Feiz is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the country. He approaches each patient as an individual, learning about their unique medical history and struggles with weight loss. Once he knows more about his new patient, he will give them information about weight loss surgeries that might work best for them. Many of his patients start by asking the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, because these are the two most popular weight loss surgeries right now. Dr. Feiz knows that these minimally-invasive procedures are very effective, but they are not the only procedures which might work. By giving his patients information on different weight loss options, he ensures that they understand what the procedure will be like, and that they are involved in their own health. Empowered patients make better decisions for themselves in the long term.
As a well-respected weight loss surgeon, Dr. Feiz knows how important it is to each of his patients to continue their weight loss journey, even when the going gets tough. He also specializes in gastric sleeve after Lap Band to help patients who have not received great benefits from that device.
