Rediscover Your Healthy Body
Obesity can be considered an epidemic in this country. Unfortunately, for people who are severely obese, losing weight and keeping it off is a lifelong struggle. Many of these individuals have tried to lose weight with diet and exercise, and been unsuccessful in maintaining those lifestyle changes. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help those who have a BMI of 40 or greater lose weight with bariatric surgery. He is also one of the few weight loss surgeons who can work with patients who need gastric sleeve after Lap Band.
Dr. Feiz is a world-class surgeon who focuses on weight loss surgery, including Lap Band revision surgery. This procedure helps people who received a Lap Band device, but for some reason, it did not work for them. Although this is a rare complication, in some uncommon cases, the surgeon may install the band too tightly, or too loosely. This prevents the patient from losing weight, and causes discomfort. Dr. Feiz can perform revision surgery to remove the Band, then permanently shrink the stomach using the gastric sleeve technique. This helps patients continue to lose weight, and get healthy.
During the very first appointment, Dr. Feiz will answer his new patient’s questions, like the difference between gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band. He will study their medical history, and give them detailed information about weight loss surgery techniques, so they can make the best choice for their long-term health.
