Lap Band Revision Procedure with Dr. Feiz
For many American adults, a little bit of excess weight can easily be shed with simple changes to diet, and the addition of an exercise routine. However, for people who have a body mass index of 40 or more, reaching a healthy weight is not that simple. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates. His practice has gathered the greatest team of medical professionals, including a nutritionist, to help patients who need weight loss surgery such as the gastric sleeve after Lap Band. Dr. Feiz himself has years of training and experience working with patients who need help losing weight and keeping it off.
Dr. Feiz is one of the finest surgeons in the country who can perform a Lap Band revision procedure. For qualifying patients, this procedure removes the Lap Band, then reduces the size of the stomach using gastric sleeve technique. It is needed because, in some cases, a patient may not experience enough benefits from the Lap Band or complications may be an issue. Sometimes, this occurs when the band is installed too tightly, causing nausea and pain. Sometimes, the band becomes loose, which prevents weight loss, or allows weight gain. However, with the revision procedure, a great many patients can continue their weight loss journey and avoid serious comorbid diseases.
