Stop Struggling and Lose Weight with Dr. Feiz
Too many people cannot keep weight off long-term, which means their health suffers. They may feel constant joint pain, or they may have diabetes or heart disease. These comorbid illnesses can drastically limit the amount of time a person lives, not just how much they enjoy their lives. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like these lose weight, keep it off, and become healthy again. He specializes in surgeries like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, where his clinic is based, and can also help individuals who might want other types of weight loss surgery.
Although many patients experience great success after their Lap Band surgery, sometimes, patients do not lose as much weight as they need to. In those cases, a surgeon may place the band in the wrong position, wrap it too tightly, or not tighten it enough. This can cause pain, acid reflux, and other digestive issues, as well as prevent the person from losing enough weight to be healthy. Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band specifically to help these patients. By removing the band, then creating the gastric sleeve by removing roughly 75 to 85 percent of the stomach, Dr. Feiz helps patients continue to lose weight, and also keep that weight off for a lifetime.
Weight loss surgeries like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and band to sleeve revision help people who suffer obesity or severe obesity lose enough weight to reduce or stop comorbid diseases, live longer, and feel better about themselves and their lives. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today.
