For those Suffering from Lap Band Erosion, Dr. Feiz is Invaluable
The FDA compliant Lap Band offered at Dr. Feiz & Associates has garnered acclaim for it's incredible effectiveness for patients with a variety of weight issues. However, no treatment is 100% effective every time, and on rare occurrences, a patient may find their weight loss isn't occurring as quickly as they had hoped due to an issue known as lap band erosion. When the Lap Band is ineffective or causes nausea or improper digestion, erosion of the band may be the culprit.
In the event that erosion does occur, removal of the band may be necessary – which makes the impeccable skill and storied experience of Dr. Feiz all the more appreciated by his patients. As an active member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons as well as the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Feiz is a renowned authority on a variety of weight loss surgery solutions that have changed lives while also serving to alleviate the risk of diseases like diabetes.
One of the most frequently discussed of the procedures performed by Dr. Feiz is vertical sleeve surgery. Unlike Lap Band, which squeezes the upper portion of the stomach, the sleeve procedure permanently reshapes the stomach into a sleeve-like shape that is roughly the size of a banana, leading to a substantially decreased appetite. For excessively overweight or obese patients, vertical sleeve is often the ideal choice, and having the procedure performed by Dr. Feiz can make all the difference.
