Although two-thirds of American adults are overweight, for some lucky people, a diet and exercise program are all it takes for them to reach a healthy weight. However, for people who are severely obese, this is very rarely anywhere near enough. Sometimes, people who are classified as severely obese gain rebound weight after a diet plan fails. This can lead to comorbid diseases like diabetes or heart disease. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., started Dr. Feiz & Associates to help people struggling with serious weight issues. He is one of the leading bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, specializing in Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and even Lap Band revision surgery.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Feiz, he will spend the very first appointment working with you to find the weight loss procedure that will suit your body the best. For many of his patients, this means learning about the difference between gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, but there are other weight loss procedures, too. As the leading weight loss surgery specialist on the West Coast, Dr. Feiz knows that educated patients are more involved in their health care, and that is why he makes sure each of his patients understands what their options are.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the few bariatric surgeons in the country who can perform gastric sleeve after Lap Band. He has extensive training and knowledge of not only bariatric procedures, but the latest surgical technology. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today to set up your first appointment.
