Dr. Feiz Guides Your Weight Loss Journey
When a person struggles with obesity or severe obesity, losing weight is about far more than just looking good in fashionable clothes. For these individuals, weight loss can be a life or death struggle, because excess weight drastically increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, breathing problems, depression, infertility, osteoarthritis, and some types of cancer. It is extremely important that people suffering from obesity or severe obesity get help losing weight. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates. He and his team have the skills and training to help their patients lose weight and keep it off with weight loss surgery, like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy in their Los Angeles clinic.
Dr. Feiz works with each of his patients individually from the very first consultation. He knows that informed patients make better decisions for their long-term health, so he communicates with his patients to help them choose a weight loss surgery that will work for their body. Although the most popular types of weight loss surgery are Lap Band or gastric sleeve, there are other options as well. Dr. Feiz even specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after lap band, to help individuals who did not experience success with their Lap Bands continue on their weight loss journey. This procedure removes the Lap Band, then removes 75 percent of the patient’s stomach to create a smaller, permanent “sleeve.” This surgery helps patients lose more weight and stay healthier.
Whether you need a band to sleeve revision, or just want to talk through all of your weight loss surgery options, Dr. Feiz & Associates is here to help.
