Band to Sleeve Revision Helps Patients Like You
Some people set out to lose weight, and they exercise a little more, which helps them shed a few pounds. For people who have a body mass index of 40, however, getting to a healthy weight is not that simple. Losing weight can lead to rebound weight gain, which can trigger the beginning of comorbid diseases. For many of these people, bariatric surgery is their best option. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the leading specialist in weight loss surgery like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles. He and his knowledgeable team at Dr. Feiz & Associates can help you learn about the weight loss procedure that will work best for you, so you can get healthy again.
Many patients benefit from the two most popular weight loss procedures, Lap Band and gastric sleeve surgery. In some rare cases, however, patients do not lose enough weight with the Lap Band procedure, or the Band can begin to cause discomfort. Dr. Feiz is one of the relatively few weight loss surgeons who specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. This procedure removes the Band, and then removes part of the stomach so the patient can continue to lose weight safely.
For your band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz will meet with you to learn about your original Lap Band procedure, and discuss potential options after the Band has been removed. Dr. Feiz and his knowledgeable team at Dr. Feiz & Associates will gladly answer your questions, so contact us today for your first appointment.
