Finding a Weight Loss Surgeon with the Right Experience
If you are thinking about getting lap band surgery, it is important to find a doctor who you can be completely comfortable with. That means finding a bariatric surgeon with a proven track record. Listen to patient testimonials. Check out the doctor’s lap band before and after pictures. They will give you a good sense of the results you can expect. Dr. Michael Feiz, an esteemed weight loss surgeon and head of Dr. Feiz & Associates, a well-known weight loss surgery center in Beverly Hills, has made a name for himself as a physician who always puts his patients first. From the moment you sit down to have our first consultation with him, he takes the time to carefully pay out the risks and benefits of every option available to you. He believes in arming his patients with the information they need to make the best decision for themselves.
The Lap Band is a highly sought-after procedure performed regularly by Dr. Feiz, but he’s also increasingly asked about the sleeve gastrectomy, another very safe and effective weight loss surgery with which he has a lot of experience. When Dr. Feiz performs the sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve procedure, he removes between 75 and 85 percent of the stomach, and reshapes the remaining part into a sleeve-like structure. Both the lap band and sleeve gastrectomy surgeries have been shown not only to result in dramatic weight loss, but also to have a profoundly beneficial effect on so-called co-morbidities like Type 2 diabetes and hypertension.
