Obesity is an increasingly serious issue in today’s modern society. However, despite this unfortunate reality, contemporary medicine has also given us new tools to fight this growing problem in the form of bariatric procedures like Lap Band. In the popular Lap Band treatment, a calibrated narrowing is created through an adjustable band around the stomach. This creates a small pouch through which only a small amount of food can pass at any given time.

Though Lap Band is notably effective, it is not right for everyone, and if unwanted side effects or other concerns arise, a patient may elect to undergo a Lap Band revision surgery. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Feiz at Dr. Feiz and Associates is able to convert a Lap Band to sleeve gastrectomy with impeccable precision and unparalleled skill. When performing the revision, Dr. Feiz will first undo the unsatisfactory Lap Band, and then perform the sleeve gastrectomy. Because it is an unusually involved surgery, it requires expert precision and an experienced hand – both of which Dr. Feiz is clearly illustrates.

The expertise of Dr. Feiz in readily apparent thank to his background in medicine at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he was trained in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Feiz is also an active Member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons, and the American College of Surgeons, illustrating the doctor’s admiration among patients and his contemporaries alike. If you’re in need of expert bariatric surgery, or you have questions regarding Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Dr. Feiz.
