Renewed Hope through Revision Bariatric Surgeries by Dr. Feiz
Recent studies have shown that bariatric surgery can successfully improve a number of health issues that are increased by weight-related health conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, endocrine disorders and more. For patients of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S at Dr. Feiz and Associates, this is very good news, as our chief surgeon Dr. Feiz is perhaps the finest practitioner of bariatric medicine in the U.S.
At his Beverly Hills-based practice, Dr. Feiz performs treatments like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy, and as well as educating his patients on Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, and which treatment might be right for their particular needs. This is invaluable, as each patient’s health goals and specific needs might lead to less than satisfying results, or even unforeseen complications if they undergo certain treatments.
In these cases, Dr. Feiz is able to perform revision treatments like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band that can provide renewed hope for those seeking safe, sustained and rapid weight loss. In a Lap Band to sleeve revision procedure, Dr. Feiz will both undo the work of a lesser surgeon, removing the Lap Band, while also performing a sleeve gastrectomy.
Since revision treatment is a notably involved treatment, the work of a meticulous surgeon like Dr. Feiz is utterly essential. As an active Member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons as well as the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Feiz is always able to provide impeccable treatment to the patients he treats, as well as much-needed peace-of-mind, and a high quality of life.
