If you are diagnosed as severely obese, you very likely may have tried to lose weight but struggled with keeping it off. Too many patients “yo-yo” back and forth with their weight, first losing many pounds, then regaining the weight plus some extra. This puts a great deal of stress on the body, and contributes to comorbid diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Get better tools to lose weight with the help of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates. They have extensive experience with helping obese patients lose weight through bariatric surgery, from Lap Band to sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
Many patients have heard of the Lap Band procedure, and want to know more about it in relation to other bariatric surgery options. What are the benefits of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve surgeries, for example? Dr. Feiz knows that not every person will react the same way to the same surgery, which is why there are different types of weight loss surgeries available. He will talk with new patients about their needs and weight loss experiences, and work with them to find a solution that can help them lose weight and keep the weight off for years to come.
In some particular cases, patients may need a band to sleeve revision. This procedure might be required if, for example, the Lap Band slips because a previous surgeon did not implant it correctly. The band might also be too tight, necessitating a revision. Dr. Feiz takes these patients and many others, because he wants everyone to experience successful weight loss in a healthy way.
