Keep the Weight Off for Good
Many American adults claim to struggle with losing weight. However, this usually means that they fell into a fad diet that didn’t work, or that they haven’t put in the effort to diet and exercise properly. For people who are severely obese – they have a BMI of 40 or more – struggling with weight loss means something much different. Diet and exercise haven’t been successful, and many individuals even gain more weight later. This can be very dangerous because of comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, sleep problems, and depression. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help severely obese individuals lose weight and keep it off.
As a bariatric surgeon, Dr. Feiz understands the struggles that his patients have endured, which is why he specializes in gastric sleeve after Lap Band and many other types of weight loss surgery.
Dr. Feiz spent years training not only in bariatric surgery, but in minimally invasive surgery, as well. This training has helped him become one of the few medical professionals in the country who can perform Lap Band revision surgery. This procedure involves removing the Lap Band, then permanently reducing the size of the stomach through the gastric sleeve procedure. It is rare that a patient would need to have their Lap Band removed, but if it is deemed necessary, Dr. Feiz wants these individuals to be able to continue their weight loss journeys.
If you have questions about the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, or other weight loss surgery options, Dr. Feiz is here for you.
