Weight Loss Can Put Type 2 Diabetes in Remission
Although many people can gain a few pounds and still be healthy, being severely obese can lead to long-term health consequences. These comorbidities include Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, arthritis and joint pain, and can lead to a shorter and less happy life. Quality of life issues aside, obese and severely obese patients live approximately 20 years less than their counterparts, and Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. understands that these patients have struggled with their weight, as well as the comorbidities, for too long. That’s why he and his incredible team at Dr. Feiz & Associates have become leaders in the bariatric surgery field, including band to sleeve revision.
Many patients come to Dr. Feiz because of his expertise in helping his patients decide between Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy. Dr. Feiz is one of the leading bariatric surgeons, especially when it comes to laparoscopic procedures, so he can perform both the Lap Band and gastric sleeve procedures with ease. Both of these procedures are minimally invasive, which allows patients to recover faster so they can begin their new lives, losing weight and feeling great about their progress. Dr. Feiz wants his patients to make informed decisions about their long-term health, because many comorbidities can go into remission or be prevented just by reaching a healthy weight. For obese and severely obese patients who struggle, Dr. Feiz knows that weight loss surgery, combined with a comprehensive care plan that his team will help with, produces the best results so his patients can fully enjoy their lives.
