Losing a few pounds for swimming season is, for many people, a matter of eating a little less. For people who struggle with severe obesity, however, the solution is never that simple. They must lose countless pounds to prevent or overcome comorbid diseases like diabetes or heart disease. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., specializes in weight loss surgery, which can help qualifying patients who are severely obese. He founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help people who suffer from severe obesity. Procedures like gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band can help many severely obese patients lose weight and get healthy again.
Dr. Feiz is one of the leading weight loss surgeons in the U.S. He is also one of the few weight loss specialists who can perform gastric sleeve after Lap Band. Although many people experience great weight loss success with the Lap Band device, in some rare cases, a surgeon may implant the band incorrectly. It could be too tight or too loose, or the band could be implanted in the wrong place. Dr. Feiz can help people who suffer these difficulties. He surgically removes the band, then removes part of the stomach to create the gastric sleeve. After that, Dr. Feiz’s patients can typically begin a healthier and happier new life.
If you need Lap Band revision surgery, then Dr. Feiz and his excellent team at Dr. Feiz & Associates are here to help. Contact us today to get your first appointment set up, so you can feel healthy, and enjoy your life.
