Don’t Just Lose Weight, Get Healthy
Obesity is a difficult medical condition that is complex and has been tough for the medical field to understand and treat. Although changes to diet and exercise routines are extremely important, many obese and severely obese people need to lose weight quickly to stop or reduce the impact of comorbidities like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, joint paint, breathing problems, and sleep apnea. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates in Los Angeles to help patients learn more about their weight loss options, including bariatric surgery like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and band to sleeve revision. He and his skilled team offer not just the surgery, but a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure the patient does not just lose weight, but feels their best and stays healthy for years.
Many of Dr. Feiz’s patients come in without knowing their bariatric surgery options – they just know that they have tried and failed to keep weight off, and suffer from numerous weight-related problems ranging from depression to hypertension. Dr. Feiz will gladly walk his patients through the benefits of bariatric surgery, especially the two most popular options right now, Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve. Dr. Feiz is a leading specialist in weight loss surgery, and has even pioneered several improvements to weight loss surgery procedures that improve outcomes for patients all over the world. He and his team know that patient education is the first step, so Dr. Feiz & Associates work with the patient to create a comprehensive care plan that includes pre- and post-operative lifestyle changes.
