Lap Band Revision Surgery with Dr. Feiz
If you have a body mass index of 40 or greater, or 35 or greater with related comorbidities (health problems), you know that you need to lose weight. This isn’t just about looking good for bathing suit season – when a person struggles with severe obesity, their lifespan can be reduced by 20 years or more. Fortunately, you can get your life back with the help of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. Feiz founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients like you who need to lose weight, and keep it off. In fact, Dr. Feiz and his team are so dedicated to helping their patients regain their health, that Dr. Feiz has become one of the most widely recognized experts in performing a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Bandremoval.
This procedure, sometimes also called Lap Band revision surgery, is a fantastic way to help patients continue to lose weight, and keep it off. You see, in some cases, the Lap Band is not as effective as it needs to be – it may also move, loosen, or tighten, changing the shape of the stomach. This can cause pain or discomfort, and can also reduce the effectiveness of the band on weight loss. For qualifying patients, Dr. Feiz can remove the Lap Band, then permanently reduce the size of the stomach to a fraction of its original size. The sleeve gastrectomy procedure is a great way for many people to successfully lose weight, and Dr. Feiz is one of the leading experts in this bariatric surgery on the West Coast.
