Reasons to Obtain a Weight Loss Procedure
Bariatric surgeries have been an enormous help to countless formerly obese people, but they are not for everyone. Renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz wants his patients to thoroughly explore why such procedures as a lap band or gastric sleeve surgery may, or may not, be right for them.
Of course, the first reason to get this kind of procedure is a patient’s health. Weight loss procedures are generally only recommended for severely obese patients, who are often facing such health issues as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even the risk of heart disease or other immediate health threats. Dr. Feiz is known for his compassionate approach to patients and he understands the issues being faced by obese patients; he can help them sort through both the benefits and the risk of a lap band, bypass, or gastric sleeve procedure.
Many of Dr. Feiz’s patients have spent many years heroically fighting their weight issues on their own and have experienced little or no last success. He understands that, while obesity is a very serious health issue, controlling it is simply not a matter of sheer “will power,” or this condition would not be so common or so difficult to fight.
The best way to find out if you are an appropriate candidate for a bariatric procedure is to meet with Dr. Feiz and allow him to understand your situation and medical history. Dr. Feiz’s is one of the world’s most highly bariatric surgeons and he is delighted to offer free initial consultations to new patients.
