Diabetes and Weight Loss Surgery
Type 2 diabetes can be managed, but is can also be one of the most difficult conditions for a person to live with. It’s clearly one of the worst side effects of severe obesity. The team at Dr. Feiz and Associates knows this, and they’ve made it their mission to help those with severe weight problems combat the range of painful downsides that come with being overweight. Dr. Feiz also knows that diabetes is distressing enough to deal with, without having to deal with all the decisions that go along with weight loss surgery, such as the decision between Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy operations. Because of this, he’s more than happy to guide his patients from initial consultation, all the way through the final recovery appointment.
For diabetics who have already had lap band surgery, but are unhappy with their results or are experiencing severe pain or nausea, Dr. Feiz can also help. His team is highly experienced, and is able to perform Lap Band revision surgery that can help to relieve the negative symptoms of the original lap band operation, while still maintaining any positive gains (negative weight loss) that may have been achieved. He often does this by executing a lap band to sleeve conversion operation, which can eliminate the painful side effects of the original operation, while hopefully allowing the patient to still see solid weight loss. And when it comes to diabetic patients, solid weight loss can be a massive help in living a happier, healthier life – especially as weight loss surgery has been to reverse, and even eliminate type 2 diabetes. The bottom line: for people dealing with both severe obesity and type 2 diabetes, there are few better doctors who can provide help than Dr. Feiz and his Associates.
