Sleeve Gastrectomy in Los Angeles Helps Many
If you struggle with severe obesity, which is defined as a body mass index of 40 or more, or 35 or greater with related health problems (comorbidities), you know that trying to lose weight is usually a frustrating battle, and a constant source of worry. Even if you are temporarily able to lose more than a few pounds, you may not be able to reach and then sustain a truly healthy weight without help. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like you. He is a leading expert in the sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients consistently turn to for support on their weight loss journey. At his practice, he also has a nutritionist on staff, as well as incredible nurses and administrators. The whole team works together so that you will receive fantastic care not just during your surgery, but before and after, too.
Dr. Feiz and his team are also leading specialists in band to sleeve revision. This procedure helps patients who have not experienced the weight loss they need with the Lap Band or who have developed complications related to it. If you qualify for this procedure, Dr. Feiz will surgically remove the Lap Band device using the latest technology. Then, he will perform the gastric sleeve procedure, which removes about 75 to 85 percent of the stomach to create a small “sleeve.” When a patient undergoes this weight loss procedure with Dr. Feiz, they will typically recover quickly with the support our skilled team, and will successfully lose weight in most cases.
