Revision Surgeries from a Masterful Weight Loss Surgeon
For those suffering from obesity, issues health issues like diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, endocrine disorders among many others can make life particularly challenging. That’s why the work of Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is so exceptional.
At his practice, Dr. Feiz and Associates, the board certified surgeon performs life-changing bariatric weight loss treatments like Lap Band, gastric sleeve surgery, and many other treatments. While these procedures have a high rate of success, particularly when performed by the incomparable Dr. Feiz, in some cases, a bariatric treatment will lead to less than satisfying results, or unfortunate complications. Fortunately, Dr. Feiz is also able to perform revision surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
In a Lap Band to sleeve revision surgery, Dr. Feiz will first undo the ineffective work of a previous surgeon, while also performing a sleeve gastrectomy. Unlike Lap Band, sleeve gastrectomy is a permanent procedure, in which nearly 85% of the stomach is removed, allowing for sustained, rapid weight loss without the feelings of discomfort that are so common when you feel hunger.
While a lot of people ask questions regarding Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, the truth is that different treatments are more effective for different people. Fortunately, a weight loss expert at Dr. Feiz and Associates is always happy to answer any questions you might have regarding the two treatments, and which weight loss surgery is the right choice for you. Whether you require an initial bariatric procedure or a revision treatment, you can always count on the team at Dr. Feiz and Associates.
