Expert Support During Your Weight Loss Journey
For years, obesity has been declared an epidemic, as more and more of the adult population in the U.S. fits the medical definition of “obese.” However, the problem of extra pounds is not about weighing significantly more than a super model – this problem has serious health consequences. Being obese or obese is strongly correlated with comorbid diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, bone and joint pain, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, sleep apnea, urinary incontinence, fertility problems, and even psychological illnesses like depression. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help severely obese patients reach a healthy weight with bariatric surgeries like Lap Band revision surgery and more.
During your very first consultation with Dr. Feiz, he will help you understand the different types of weight loss surgery options. Right now, the two most popular procedures are Lap Band and gastric sleeve, unlike older operations, these do not rearrange the digestive system but have a hugely helpful impact on weight loss. Dr. Feiz will discuss the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band with you, and help you consider these or other options for your best weight loss outcome.
Dr. Feiz and his expert team will also follow up with you consistently after surgery so they can make sure you are healing well, and that you are beginning to lose weight. They can answer any questions you have about the process before and after, because they want to make sure you have all the knowledge you need. Whether you just want to learn about your weight loss surgery options, or you need an expert in gastric sleeve after Lap Band if an initial procedure has been problematic, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
