Discover Your Healthiest Self
When many people think about wanting to lose weight, it is may be about looking better in a swim suit or fitting into a smaller pair of pants. For people who suffer from severe obesity, however, weight loss is about survival. These individuals struggle with their weight for years, and can suffer comorbid health problems like diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and blood pressure, joint pain, depression, infertility, and an increased risk of several kinds of cancer. Losing significant weight can help these individuals deal successfully with these conditions – but losing weight and keeping it off can often seem like an impossible task. That’s where Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Dr. Feiz & Associates comes in. He has extensive training and years of experience working with obese individuals to help them reach a healthy weight with Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or band to sleeve revision procedures.
Dr. Feiz works with each patient as a unique individual, helping them decide on the best weight loss surgery for their particular health situation. He knows through long experience that information is the key to helping his patients make the best decisions, and feel more involved in their own weight loss journey. The most popular types of weight loss surgery are either Lap Band or sleeve gastrectomy, also called gastric sleeve. Dr. Feiz offers weight loss surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy at his Los Angeles clinic and at locations throughout Southern California.
Dr. Feiz also specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after lap band. This procedure is relatively rarely performed by most weight loss surgeons because most individuals with a Lap Band experience great success. However, on the rare occasions when it fails, patients turn to Dr. Feiz for help to keep losing weight and getting healthy.
