Better Information and Expertise for Weight Loss
With one-third of Americans suffering from obesity or severe obesity, weight loss surgery is a more important option than ever. That’s because severely obese people nearly always struggle to keep from gaining weight, let alone being able to permanently lose enough weight to become healthy. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help obese and severely obese people overcome their weight difficulties through bariatric surgery. He and his team specialize in a variety of techniques like sleeve gastrectomy, or Lap Band revision surgery, to help patients keep off their excess weight and deal with numerous health problems.
The first and most important step when Dr. Feiz meets new patients is to educate them on their options. He discusses their medical history to get a sense of which surgeries might work best for them, and works with patients to make sure they understand his recommendations. He does this because educated patients are more involved in their journey, which means that they maintain a healthy weight for longer and recover faster post-surgery.
The two most popular types of weight loss procedures right now are sleeve gastrectomy and Lap Band, and Dr. Feiz will discuss the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band if those surgeries are appropriate for the patient. Many patients experience incredible success with these procedures, and Dr. Feiz is glad to discuss them to ensure the patient knows what their expected outcomes will be. Whether you want to discuss a possible gastric sleeve after Lap Band, or just need more information to choose the right weight loss surgery, Dr. Feiz & Associates is here for you.
