Leading Lap Band Revision Surgery
People who struggle with being severely obese benefit from weight loss surgery with the help of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. He founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help people with a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 with comorbid diseases, with his skills and years of experience in weight loss surgery like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and also Lap Band revision surgery.
At the very first appointment, Dr. Feiz will speak to you about your weight loss surgery options to make sure you are well informed. He knows that educated patients make the best choices for their health, but he also knows that each person is unique, and different surgical methods will work for different people. Many patients ask about the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, but there are other options which Dr. Feiz can discuss, as well. However, both gastric sleeve and Lap Band are minimally invasive procedures which help the patient heal faster after the procedure. Fast healing helps patients get back on their feet sooner, so they can begin their new, healthy lives.
Dr. Feiz also specializes in gastric sleeve after Lap Band, to help the rare patients who, for many reasons, do not receive the most benefit from the Lap Band treatment. Although many people see great weight loss success with the Lap Band’s help, sometimes, a surgeon will place the device improperly, or the device can slip. This causes discomfort and prevents weight loss and, in some cases, it simply doesn’t provide sufficient results. With the revision procedure, Dr. Feiz can help these people continue to lose weight and get healthy. For details on all of these procedures, contact us today.
