Stop Yo-Yoing Weight, and Keep Pounds Off
Too many patients who have been diagnosed as obese or severely obese struggle to lose weight, and keep it off long-term. While they might achieve some weight loss, too often these patients rebound and regain the weight, plus some extra. This unhealthy back-and-forth contributes to many comorbid diseases, from cardiovascular disease to diabetes to breathing problems, and even some types of cancer. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. at Dr. Feiz & Associates is here to help. He is one of the leading bariatric surgeons on the West Coast, and his extensive training and experience help him help his patients lose weight. Whether the patient wants a Lap Band procedure, or needs a band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz’s patient focus and thorough understanding of procedures gives him the tools to help his patients experience sustainable weight loss.
Many obese patients come to Dr. Feiz without any basic knowledge of bariatric surgery. In his very first appointment, Dr. Feiz works with patients to educate them on their surgical options, especially the benefits of the most popular weight loss surgeries, Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve surgeries. He will then work with them to decide on the best approach, and create a treatment plan to help them prepare for surgery, recover from surgery, and lose weight in a healthy way.
Dr. Feiz also works closely with patients who need a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. It is relatively rare that patients need a revision surgery, but Dr. Feiz has worked with several of these patients to help them successfully continue their weight loss journey.
