Specializing in Sleeve Gastrectomy after Lap Band
It seems like most everyone wants to lose weight these days, but when someone is severely obese, the solution is not as simple as just eating less or exercising more. When you need to lose weight rapidly, you may consider weight loss surgery. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the leading specialist for weight loss surgeries like the sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients seek out. He and his talented team at Dr. Feiz & Associates work with each patient individually to ensure they get the best bariatric procedure for them.
During the very first consultation, Dr. Feiz will ask questions about what you, as the patient, want out of the procedure. Many people choose either the Lap Band or gastric sleeve procedures, but Dr. Feiz will also inform you about your options, so you can make the best decision for your body. He also specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, to help patients continue to lose weight even if they had complications with their Lap Band procedure.
The band to sleeve revision procedure can sometimes be performed in one surgery, while other individuals need some time between the Lap Band’s removal and the sleeve gastrectomy itself. Dr. Feiz has more experience helping these patients than many other bariatric surgeons, so he will be able to advise patients on how the procedure will likely work best for their bodies. He and his knowledgeable team also follow up with each patient very closely after the procedure to make sure the healing process has begun, and make sure the patient does not have any questions. Dr. Feiz has the dedication and experience to help you, so contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
