Sleeve vs. Lap Band Solutions for You
One in 20 American adults is severely obese. These individuals are more likely to suffer several serious diseases, like diabetes, heart disease, and even sleep apnea, depression, and some types of cancer. It is important to lose weight, but if you are one of these people, you know that the struggle can be difficult and frustrating. You know you should try to reach a healthy goal weight, but you may find you have only shed a few pounds after a great deal of effort, or even experienced rebound weight gain after a seemingly successful weight loss. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is here to help people just like you. He founded Dr. Feiz & Associates so he could gather a talented and knowledgeable team to help severely obese people with bariatric surgery, including gastric sleeve after Lap Band.
Although it is often not needed, Lap Band revision surgery is a lifesaver for many. Dr. Feiz offers this type of surgery, because he understands that continuing your weight loss journey is not just about looking good – it is about living well, and regaining your health. If you have a Lap Band device that has failed, or is causing serious discomfort and pain, you may find that you are not losing weight, or are beginning to regain weight. When you work with Dr. Feiz, he can help you find out if you qualify for the revision procedure. He will remove your band and then perform a sleeve gastrectomy, so you have a permanently smaller stomach that will also produce some very real hormonal benefits.
