Change Your Life to Focus on Health
Diet and exercise are often portrayed in the media as relatively easy. However, many people struggle with maintaining these lifestyle changes, even if they only need to lose a few pounds. For severely obese people the battle is all that much harder, and diet and exercise often fail to help them lose weight and keep the pounds off. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his caring team at Dr. Feiz and Associates understand that their patients have tried for years, sometimes decades, to follow diet plans and exercise routines and these options have simply not been enough. Weight loss surgery might seem like a tough choice, but Dr. Feiz is here to help you make the right bariatric surgery choice, such as knowing the difference between Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, so you can reach your goal weight and get back to enjoying your life.
The two most popular weight loss surgeries today are the Lap Band and the gastric sleeve, also called sleeve gastrectomy. These procedures are both minimally invasive, which means you have less scar tissue, and you heal faster after surgery. Dr. Feiz has years of experience with laparoscopic procedures so his patients can begin their weight loss journey faster after undergoing weight loss surgery with his team. Whether you want a Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or even a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band removal, Dr. Feiz and Associates can help you.
We offer regular free seminars on all the types of bariatric surgery available, including band to sleeve revision for the few who do not get the benefits they wanted from the Lap Band procedure. Contact us for more information on our seminars, or for other general questions and to set up your appointment.
