Patient-Focused Weight Loss Procedures
Being obese or severely obese contributes to numerous health problems, which can severely limit a person’s ability to enjoy their life. If you are severely obese and have struggled with your weight for a long time, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is here to help you. You may qualify for weight loss surgery, and Dr. Feiz founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help patients who need to lose weight and keep it off. Whether a patient wants a Lap Band procedure, or is curious about band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz and his team are here to help.
Many patients come in with questions about two of the most popular weight loss procedures, the Lap Band and the gastric sleeve. They may not know the benefits of Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, so Dr. Feiz spends his first appointment with new patients discussing the possibilities and what might work best for the patient as an individual. Each body is different, and Dr. Feiz wants his patients to make educated decisions for themselves. His focus on his patients as unique individuals helps ensure their weight loss success.
Dr. Feiz also works with patients who need Lap Band revision surgery. This procedure could be necessary because of an on-going struggle with the “hunger hormone,” ghrelin, but it could also be necessary because the patient suffers from complications related to a Lap Band. Dr. Feiz helps patients who need revisions from previous surgeries with other surgeons, as well as those new to bariatric surgery. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today for help with weight loss.
