Help for Severe Obesity
If you are one of the thousands of people in the US struggling with severe obesity, you know how important it is to lose weight. If you cannot reach a healthy weight, you are much more likely to suffer a host of related illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and joint pain. However, if you can reach a healthy weight, you can stop these problems in their tracks. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like you overcome their obesity-related issues with weight loss surgery. He and his team specialize in Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy at their Los Angeles clinic, although they offer other types of weight loss surgery, as well.
Among these, Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. This surgery helps patients who do not succeed with the Lap Band continue losing weight by removing the band, then removing 75 percent of the stomach to create a sleeve procedure. There are many reasons patients do not lose weight with the Lap Band, and revision surgery is a great option for many of these individuals. Because Dr. Feiz is driven to help all people struggling with obesity, he has focused much of his practice on this type of revision surgery.
As one of the country’s leading weight loss surgeons, Dr. Feiz and his knowledgeable team work with their patients every step of the way to make sure they have the most information to make the best decision for their body. These decisions range from which weight loss procedure to undergo, to helping patients who need band to sleeve revision to overcome weight loss obstacles. They also make sure their patients get back on their feet faster after surgery, so they can start losing weight and enjoy their lives again.
