After struggling to maintain weight loss with diet and exercise, many weight loss patients become frustrated and sad. Comorbid diseases like heart disease and diabetes, along with joint pain and breathing problems, limit life’s possibilities for many obese patients. The only way they can regain their high quality of life is to lose the weight, but their bodies fight them, making a sustained significant weight loss an almost unachievable goal. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. started his practice, Dr. Feiz and Associates – he and his incredible care team understand their patients’ many struggles with weight loss, so they specialize in weight loss surgery like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and even band to sleeve revision, so their patients can lose the weight and keep it off.
Dr. Feiz sees all types of patients, from brand new patients who know nothing about weight loss surgery, to patients who are considering revision surgery. Dr. Feiz focuses particularly on patients who want or need sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band removal. He works with patients who need to have their Lap Bands removed, or who have had the Band removed already and healed in order to get the gastric sleeve procedure performed. While most patients with Lap Band see great results, in some rare cases, they do not lose as much weight as they need to. Dr. Feiz can help these patients continue their weight loss success with revision procedures.
If you have basic questions about Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve benefits, or you are concerned you might benefit from band to sleeve revision surgery, contact our skilled, professional team at Dr. Feiz and Associates.
