Leaders in Lap Band Revision Surgery
If you have a BMI of 40 or over, or 35 or over with comorbidities (related health problems), you may qualify for weight loss surgery. When choosing a physician, consider Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Feiz himself is one of the best weight loss surgeons on the West Coast, and his team helps support each patient before and after the procedure. Whether you are new to this kind of medicine and want to talk through your weight loss surgery options, or need Lap Band revision surgery, Dr. Feiz is here to help.
Dr. Feiz and his team work with each patient as individuals, who all have specific needs and weight loss goals. During the first consultation, Dr. Feiz will get to know your case, including your detailed health history. Based on this information, he may make a recommendation regarding which of the available weight loss surgeries might work best for you. This isn’t just a simple matter of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, although these are the two most popular bariatric procedures right now – there’s often more to it than that. Regardless, he wants to make sure his patients are educated about their options, and involved in the process of their own health care.
Dr. Feiz & Associates is also one of the few groups of bariatric specialists who can help with all types of issues, including placing a gastric sleeve after Lap Band. Qualifying patients can have their underperforming or problematic Lap Bands removed, and then receive a sleeve gastrectomy procedure. This creates a permanently smaller stomach “sleeve,” so you can continue losing weight.
If you want help getting to a healthier and happier life, Dr. Feiz wants to hear from you.
