When it comes to being severely overweight, there is no shortage of annoying obstacles to deal with. Much of the world wasn’t built for those who are much larger than average, and feeling comfortable in one’s own skin can also be a problem. Luckily, for those who want to downsize, there’s Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. who can help with weight loss surgeries like the gastric sleeve. Dr. Feiz specializes in delivering top-tier patient care and is happy to help his patients with every step of the process, from deciding on the choice between a Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, all the way through final recovery.
A sleeve gastrectomy, for those who are unfamiliar with the term, is a procedure which results in the removal of a portion of the stomach. This leads to a person feeling less hunger, which results in eating less and losing weight. This obviously has huge potential health benefits, because if an overweight person can cut down on their calorie intake, it gives them a much better shot at becoming fitter faster. Many patients who have been unable to lose weight, and then to keep it off over the long term, have found that surgeries makes an almost impossible task highly achievable.
Dr. Feiz & Associates also offer Lap Band revision surgery for people who have had lap band surgery, but are unhappy with the results. While Lap Band surgeries are effective most of the time, there are occasions where this isn’t the case. Fortunately, Dr. Feiz can revise the original Lap Band, and give his patient an excellent shot at achieving the weight loss goals they originally wanted. And, for those who want to remove the Lap Band completely, but still have some medical help with weight loss, Dr. Feiz also offers band to sleeve surgery. This is ideal for folks who want to take a serious shot at lowering their hunger.
