Weight loss can be difficult if you feel like you’re doing it all on your own. Dieting takes tremendous will power and exercise can be tough if your joints and back hurt from being overweight. The longer you let your obesity take over your life, the harder it will be to fight it. If you have a BMI of 35 (or 30 with an obesity-related health issue, like diabetes) you may be qualified for life-saving weight loss surgery. At Dr. Feiz and Associates, we are dedicated to helping our patients fight obesity through surgery.
Dr. Michael Feiz and his talented team of associates perform a couple of different types of bariatric surgery: Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. Lap Band creates an hourglass-like shape in your stomach by placing a band around it, to promote weight loss with minimal scarring. The gastric sleeve is a more invasive surgery, in which a portion of the stomach is removed to permanently adjust the digestive system. Your choice of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve should be discussed with a qualified surgeon like the incredible team at Dr. Feiz and Associates.
Whether you’re interested in Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz and his team are the best in the business. At our state of the art facilities we use the latest technology to begin you on a positive weight loss journey. There’s no time like the present to get started on a healthier life for yourself.
