Get Expert Help with Weight Loss Surgery
If a person is severely obese, weight loss isn’t a matter of looking pretty or fitting into a smaller dress size. Losing weight becomes a matter of life or death. People who are obese have a difficult time losing weight or reaching a healthy weight, and this can lead to comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, depression, sleep apnea, and some types of cancer. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help obese and severely obese patients reach a healthy weight and keep the pounds off long-term. He and his team specialize in bariatric procedures like gastric sleeve after Lap Band, but they also focus on their patients as individuals who need care before and after surgery.
Dr. Feiz works with each of his patients as individuals. He knows from his extensive training and years of experience that each body is different, and although qualifying individuals will benefit from weight loss surgery, it is important for these patients to know what their options are. There are many types of weight loss surgery, and Dr. Feiz can help his patients choose the right procedure for their body. Many patients are interested in either Lap Band or gastric sleeve, two procedures that Dr. Feiz specializes in, so he can explain the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, along with the benefits of other procedures, too. Informed patients feel more involved in their care, because they have been empowered to make a good choice.
If you have questions about whether or not you qualify for weight loss surgery, or need a specialized bariatric procedure like Lap Band revision surgery, Dr. Feiz has the expertise to help.
