Expert Sleeve Gastrectomy in Los Angeles
Very often, people who struggle with being severely obese cannot lose weight and keep it off. This can lead to comorbid diseases, like diabetes or heart disease, which get worse if left untreated. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates because he wants to help severely obese patients lose weight and stop poor health in its tracks. If you need a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, or seek answers about the best bariatric procedure for you, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates.
Although Dr. Feiz can perform many types of weight loss surgeries, he is one of the relatively few with the knowledge and skill to perform a band to sleeve revision. In some cases, a surgeon may place a Lap Band in the wrong spot, to install it too loose or too tight. This can lead to pain, discomfort, and prevent weight loss. Dr. Feiz can remove the Lap Band, and then perform the gastric sleeve procedure, which then helps the patient continue to lose weight. Look no further than Dr. Feiz for Lap Band or sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles.
If you need a band to sleeve revision, contact the knowledgeable staff at Dr. Feiz & Associates today. Dr. Feiz can work with you on a one-day procedure if possible, but he will also discuss the potential for a multiday revision surgery. Sometimes, patients are interested in procedures other than Lap Band or gastric sleeve, as well, and Dr. Feiz is glad to discuss those options. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today to set up your appointment.
