Experts in Gastric Sleeve after Lap Band
Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, is the founder of Dr. Feiz & Associates, the leading bariatric surgery group in Southern California. He boasts years of training and experience in bariatric surgical procedures, including gastric sleeve after Lap Band, to help patients lose weight and get healthy again. When you are severely obese, it is important to lose weight safely and successfully – Dr. Feiz and his team are here to help.
At your very first appointment at Dr. Feiz & Associates, Dr. Feiz himself will discuss your personal health history. Every patient’s body differs from every other patients, so it is important for Dr. Feiz to know as much about your medical history as possible, before he begins to recommend bariatric procedures. Once he learns about you and your goals, he will offer suggestions and detailed information about which weight loss surgeries might work best for you. Patients who are educated about their options, such as gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, make the best decisions for their long-term health.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the best weight loss surgeons there is when it comes to performing Lap Band revision surgery. In some rare cases, a patient may find that their surgeon installed their Band incorrectly – too loose or too tight – or that the Band has begun to erode. Dr. Feiz can help these patients by removing the Lap Band, and for qualifying patients, he can perform the gastric sleeve procedure so they can continue to lose weight.
If you have a BMI of 40 or greater or 35 or over with comorbidities, you may qualify for weight loss surgery. Contact us today for details.
