Lap Band to Sleeve Revision Performed with Expert Precision
For years, Dr. Feiz has received praise from patients and contemporaries alike for the outstanding outcomes he garners by performing effective weight loss procedures. Dr. Feiz understands that weight and obesity issues can be delicate – and that they can often lead to severe and even life threatening issues like diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and much more. That's why he has developed precise skill and expertise in performing a variety of weight loss treatments as well as revision surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band and many other procedures.
At Dr. Feiz and Associates, the acclaimed surgeon will perform Lap Band to sleeve revision surgery for patients who have undergone bariatric treatment under the care of a lesser surgeon – and achieved less than stellar results. A Lap Band is designed to change the stomach into an hourglass shape – without actually dividing the stomach or bowels. This leads a patient to eat less while enjoying comfortable weight loss.
However, if a band slips, or effective weight loss isn't achieved due to any number of complications, a revision surgery might be needed. During a revision, Dr. Feiz might remove the original Lap Band while performing a sleeve gastrectomy. Though the procedure is notoriously challenging, the precision and expertise of Dr. Feiz means that patients will always receive the best possible care – and they can expect remarkable results. If you have questions regarding Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve or any other weight loss issue, don't hesitate to get in touch with Dr. Feiz today.
