Unfortunately, for those suffering from severe obesity, it seems as if the associated problems are endless. There may be mobility issues, decreased stamina, and numerous other physical and mental health risks that come with the diagnosis. Even worse, if an individual remains severely obese, the likelihood of diabetes is extremely high. And, needless to say, diabetes can have a huge range of negative impacts on your health.
Luckily, if you want help with your condition with assistance from a weight loss surgery, there’s Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates. Dr. Feiz and his colleagues have decades of experience and can help their patients with every step of the process, beginning with the decision that arises from the option of the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, all the way through the final recovery stages.
Lap Band revision surgery is also available from Dr. Feiz, and is an excellent option for those who want to replace their original Lap Band surgery with a gastric sleeve. For those who don’t know, the Lap Band works by placing a band around the stomach, making the available area smaller and discouraging excessive food intake. The gastric sleeve on the other hand, removes a large portion of the stomach, giving it a sleeve shape. In some case, the latter operation may prove to be more effective than the former for a number of reasons. If you are in need of an initial procedure or a band to sleeve operation Dr. Feiz & Associates is looking forward to hearing from you.
