Sleeve Gastrectomy After Lap Band Specialist
When many people gain extra weight, they feel sluggish, but a new diet and exercise routine are often enough to shed the excess pounds. For people who are severely obese, however, just a diet or a new form of exercise is not enough. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help patients who need weight loss surgery to shed extra pounds and overcome comorbid diseases. He is the leading specialist in Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, and one of the best bariatric surgeons on the West Coast. He and his great team at Dr. Feiz & Associates will help you lose the weight you need to get healthy.
To qualify for a bariatric procedure, you must have a BMI of 40 or greater, or 35 with comorbid diseases. When you schedule your first appointment with Dr. Feiz, he will learn more about you, and educate you on the different bariatric procedures available. Most patients see great benefit from either the Lap Band or gastric sleeve procedures, but there are several other options. Dr. Feiz knows that educated patients are more invested in their health, and he wants each patient to know that they are unique. For patients who do not receive the weight loss benefits they need from their Lap Band, Dr. Feiz can also perform a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
If you need a band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz is the best option on the West Coast. He is one of the few specialists who can perform this revision procedure, so contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today to set up your first appointment.
