Band to Sleeve Revision Specialists in Southern California
As one of the leading weight loss specialists in Southern California, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to gather an outstanding team of weight loss professionals under one roof. Dr. Feiz himself specializes in procedures like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients demand, but he has not neglected the other aspects of weight loss care – he has nutritionists and psychologists on staff, to help each patient with pre- and post-surgery care.
Dr. Feiz knows how important it is for people with a BMI of 40 (or 35 with comorbidities) or greater to lose weight and keep it off. Many patients choose the Lap Band procedure, which is minimally invasive, and does not make drastic changes to the digestive system. However, sometimes a patient does not have a band installed correctly – although this is rare, sometimes a surgeon can install the band too loose or too tight. This can lead the Band to slip, which causes discomfort and less weight loss. In other cases, a band simply does not provide a large enough weight loss. To help these patients, Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band – a procedure that removes the band, then, through the gastric sleeve process, turns the stomach into a permanently smaller “sleeve.” Patients can then typically continue healthy weight loss without discomfort or pain.
If you need a band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz is the best choice in Southern California. He has years of experience working with patients to help them lose weight and keep it off. He focuses on each patient as an individual, with individual goals and needs. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
