Countless Americans admit they struggle to lose weight. However, people who are severely obese undergo a real struggle with their weight. Losing weight means fighting off comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and even depression and some types of cancer. But keeping the pounds off is nearly impossible for most people, thanks to persistent pangs of appetite that only seem to increase as we begin to lose weight. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates, know that this is a real and difficult struggle, but they are here to help. Dr. Feiz is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the country, with the skills and experience to perform all kinds of weight loss procedures from Lap Band, to band to sleeve revision.
Dr. Feiz knows that educated patients make the best decisions for their long-term health. That’s why, during the very first consultation, he will get to know you as an individual, and look at your medical history. These important steps give him information about which type of bariatric surgery might be best for your body type. He will discuss in detail the kinds of surgery that might suit you, especially Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, because these are minimally invasive procedures with a high success rate. However, he and his team believe it is very important for patients to be involved in their own care – when a patient takes charge of their health, they will be invested for life.
Not only is Dr. Feiz highly skilled at both the Lap Band and gastric sleeve procedures, he is also one of the few weight loss surgeons in the country who has the expertise to perform Lap Band revision surgery. Contact him today to set up your consultation.
