Start Your New, Healthy Life Today
If you have been diagnosed with severe weight-related health issues, you know that you need to lose weight sooner rather than later. For obese and severely obese patients, losing weight is not just about looking their best or feeling better, but about survival. Comorbid diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure can take years off a person’s life. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team of weight loss specialists at Dr. Feiz and Associates are here to help you learn more about Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and band to sleeve revision procedures so that you can lose weight and enjoy your life again.
Patients often come to Dr. Feiz with questions about which procedure – Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve – would work best for them. Dr. Feiz knows that each patient’s mind and body responds differently to treatment, so he is glad to talk to patients about the difference between these two procedures to help them find out which procedure is most likely to work best in their case. His office offers regular free seminars on weight loss surgeries, so you can make an informed decision and feel great about your new weight loss journey.
In very rare instances, patients may have trouble with the Lap Band procedure: for example, the patient may not lose weight as quickly as they need to, or a poorly-performed surgery leads the Band to slip or become uncomfortable. Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, which creates a permanently smaller stomach and can help patients lose weight as fast as they need to.
