Dr. Feiz Empowers His Patients to Lose Weight
If you have struggled to lose weight and keep it off, and your BMI is 40 or more, or 35 with obesity-related comorbidities, you may qualify for weight loss surgery. Bariatric procedures have helped many individuals reach a healthy weight, and reduce the impact of comorbid diseases like Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, and depression. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help people who are severely obese lose weight with bariatric procedures, including both initial operations and Lap Band revision surgery. He and his team are not only leading experts in the field of weight loss surgery, but they know that support before and after surgery helps patients heal quickly and begin their weight loss journeys faster.
Dr. Feiz begins his relationship with his patients by getting to know more about them during the initial consultation. He also educates his new patients about their weight loss surgery options. He knows that there are many types of procedures, although the most popular two are Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy. However, everybody is different, so one type of weight loss procedure is not going to work for everyone across the board. By educating his patients on their options, including such matters as the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, Dr. Feiz ensures his patients feel empowered to make their own decisions with the help of their doctor. When a patient is involved in their weight loss surgery, they will achieve a better outcome because they have a better understanding of the procedure.
Dr. Feiz and his team will also give patients the knowledge and resources to prepare for their surgery, and check on them regularly after surgery to ensure they are recovering well and beginning to lose weight. Whether a patient wants a first time procedure or a gastric sleeve after Lap Band, Dr. Feiz has the expertise to help his patients get healthy again.
