Keep the Weight Off with Bariatric Surgery
For some people, eating a little less and exercising a little more helps them lose weight. For many people struggling with severe obesity, however, diet and exercise have consistently failed to work. Sometimes, rebound weight gain following a weight loss means extra pounds that can lead to comorbid diseases, too, like high cholesterol or diabetes. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S founded Dr. Feiz & Associates so he could help severely obese patients lose weight with bariatric surgery. Dr. Feiz specializes in a wide range of weight loss procedures, from an initial procedure like a Lap Band, to a band to sleeve revision.
Dr. Feiz boasts many years of training and experience, not only as a bariatric surgeon, but also on minimally-invasive surgical techniques. His focus on this type of surgery means that he has the skills to perform minute maneuvers and complex techniques, which makes him one of the best bariatric surgeons in the U.S. He is also one of the few bariatric surgeons with the talent to perform Lap Band revision surgery. This procedure is a relatively rare, but important, type of corrective surgery. While most patients get great results from their Lap Bands, in some rare cases, they do not lose the weight they need or complications become an issue. Dr. Feiz can correct this, so his patients can continue to lose weight and get healthy.
If you have questions about the best weight loss surgery for you, such as whether a Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy is best for you, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates to set up your first consultation.
