Sleeve Gastrectomy After Lap Band with Dr. Feiz
Many people who are considered somewhat overweight worry about their health. For these people, however, getting healthy is a matter of changing their diet and exercise routines. Many people in the US, and all over the world, struggle with obesity, and their path is more difficult. People who are severely obese, which is defined as having a body mass index of 40 or more, however, truly struggle with reaching a healthy weight. More often than not, they are unable to make significant headway. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is one of the leading weight loss surgeons in the US, and he founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help severely obese people get healthy. He has gathered a team of skilled professionals, like nutritionists and nurses, to help him work with weight loss patients during all phases of weight loss. If you are interested in a bariatric procedure like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, Dr. Feiz is here to help.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the premier surgeons in the US specializing in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. In some cases, people who choose the Lap Band device to lose weight do not experience the results they need, or hope for. Also, issues can arise because the band tends to be either too tight or too loose. This can cause pain and discomfort, and prevent weight loss. For qualifying patients, Dr. Feiz can remove the Lap Band device, then perform a sleeve gastrectomy to create a permanently smaller stomach. Patients recover quickly and typically experience improved results.
