Weight loss is the best way to avoid comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, joint pain, sleep apnea, and even reproductive problems and depression. However, reaching a healthy goal weight is tough without help. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like you reach their weight loss goals.

Dr. Feiz and his team are also leading experts in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. This procedure helps the patients who have a Lap Band device, but who have not received weight loss benefits from this procedure. During the procedure, the Lap Band is removed, then Dr. Feiz will remove roughly 75 to 85 percent of the stomach using the gastric sleeve technique. This creates a small sleeve that preserves the basic functioning of the stomach, but which can significantly reduce the appetite. Dr. Feiz and his team offers personal follow-up before and after the procedure, as well, to make sure patients understand the surgery, what they need to do to ensure their success, and that they are healing well.
