Choose Sleeve vs. Lap Band with Dr. Feiz Help
Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, founded Dr. Feiz & Associates so that he could gather a team to help him support severely obese individuals in their weight loss journey. Dr. Feiz is one of the leading weight loss surgeons on the West Coast, and his compassionate colleagues help him work with each patient as an individual, not only during the procedure, but before and after, as well.
As a specialist in procedures like Lap Band revision surgery, Dr. Feiz also helps patients who have had difficulty with previous bariatric procedures. Although it is rare, sometimes a patient does not experience the weight loss success they need to get healthy.
Lap Bands are sometimes incorrectly placed, which can lead to acid reflux, erosion, abdominal pain, and a lack of weight loss. Dr. Feiz can help revise these issues by removing the Lap Band. For qualifying patients, he can also perform gastric sleeve after Lap Band. This procedure involves removing part of the stomach to create a “sleeve,” which acts much the same as the pouch created by the Lap Band. However, this permanently smaller stomach helps patients consistently feel full and satisfied after smaller meals, largely due to some added hormonal benefits.
