Overcome Your Weight Problems with Dr. Feiz
For those who are diagnosed with obesity or severe obesity, the weight loss battle has gone on for many years. Being overweight increases a person’s chances of developing diabetes or heart disease, but being severely obese almost guarantees that these problems will develop. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates know that these patients need help not only from trained surgeons, but from a compassionate group who focus on the individual’s long-term health goals. Whether patients need information on Lap Band vs. sleeve options, or seek a revision surgery, Dr. Feiz and his team can help.
Dr. Feiz is one of the leading surgical experts for Lap Band revision surgery. Although problems are relatively uncommon, some patients find that the Lap Band does not work for them. Other bariatric surgeons may not install the band device properly, so it could slip, become looser or tighter, or begin to degrade. Sometimes, the Lap Band causes nausea or vomiting in the patient which does not go away. These long-term health risks must be dealt with, and Dr. Feiz has the expertise to help these patients. His team will also help create a long-term care plan that will ensure the patient keeps getting healthier, even after the initial post-surgical weight loss slows down.
If you need band to sleeve revision, look no further than Dr. Feiz & Associates. The nutrition and surgery experts focus on each patient as a complete individual who can overcome comorbidities and live a long, healthy life.
