Dr. Feiz is also one of the more highly experienced weight loss surgeons who can perform a gastric sleeve after Lap Band. In some cases, patients do not lose enough weight after they receive their Lap Band, or they do not experience the expected weight loss. Perhaps these people begin to feel nauseous, develop acid reflux, or pain because of their band. This means that the band is no longer working as it should, and may need to be removed. For qualifying patients, Dr. Feiz can remove the band, and then perform a sleeve gastrectomy to create a permanently smaller sleeve-like pouch. This helps the patient continue to lose weight, because they will feel full after eating less, and will be more satisfied with smaller meals.
