If at First You Don’t Succeed…
When you get right down to it, life kind of boils down to a series of challenges, and we don’t always get things right on the first attempt. This definitely applies to weight loss. Many people try and fail to lose weight, and the more weight a person has to lose, the harder it can be. However, thanks to weight loss procedures like the gastric sleeve and Lap Band, there is every reason to think that even severely obese people have every reason to keep trying.
Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. places a premium on helping his patients understand the ins-and-outs of their surgical weight loss strategies, and has helped countless individuals understand such important issues as the pros and cons of Lap Band vs. sleeve procedures. He has also helped to keep hope alive for patients who may have obtained a band procedure with another doctor and had to deal with disappointing results or complications.
Yes, Dr. Feiz has performed successful Lap Band revision surgery and helped prove to many women and men that a happier and healthier life is still very much a possibility. He has also been a leader in raising awareness of the role certain hormones play in terms of making weight loss so difficult for so many. The gastric sleeve procedure in particular seems to reduce the amount of hormones associated with excessive hunger.
If you are new to weight loss surgery and wish to learn more, or if you are dealing with an unsuccessful procedure and are interested in a possible band to sleeve conversion, Dr. Feiz and Associates would like to hear from you. Free seminars are held on a regular basis.
