Reach a Healthy Weight for Life
Two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese. For many of these people, losing weight is a simple matter of creating a diet and exercise plan that they can stick to. However, six percent of American adults are considered severely obese – for these individuals, diet and exercise have failed to help them maintain a healthy weight. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help qualifying patients reach a healthy weight with weight loss surgery. As a leading weight loss surgeon, Dr. Feiz specializes in a variety of procedures, including Lap Band revision surgery.
When patients come to Dr. Feiz, they may expect a surgeon who tells them exactly what they need to do. However, Dr. Feiz believes that patients who are empowered to make informed decisions about their health will become more invested in a good outcome, and will be healthier in the long run. He learns more about each patient as an individual, their medical history, and their previous struggles with weight loss. Based on that information, he can guide his patients to weight loss procedures that might work best for them. Many of his patients ask about the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, and Dr. Feiz often recommends these procedures – however, these options may not be the best for you, and Dr. Feiz will work with you to discover the best bariatric procedure for your weight loss journey.
If you need a gastric sleeve after Lap Band, or simply have questions about which procedure might be best for you, contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
