The Best Path to Weight Loss
Did you know that one-third of adults are obese in the US? That number is continuing to rise, and childhood obesity rates are going up, as well. While many people maintain that the obesity epidemic is caused by poor eating habits and lack of exercise, these theories tend to blame the victim. The truth is that there are many reasons that people gain weight and have a hard time keeping it off. For many severely obese individuals, struggling with diet and exercise has made them question if they can ever be healthy again. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the US, and he knows how difficult maintaining a healthy weight can be for some individuals. He founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help severely obese people who want to pursue weight loss surgery like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles.
Dr. Feiz knows that it is very important for his patients to have all the information before they make a decision about the best weight loss path. As an expert in many bariatric procedures, Dr. Feiz can give patients a lot of information about what kind of weight loss surgery tends to work best for which body types. For example, Lap Band procedures work for many people, but not everyone, which is why Dr. Feiz is also one of the few weight loss surgeons who specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
Whether you need a band to sleeve revision, or just have questions about whether you qualify for weight loss surgery, the caring and knowledgeable team at Dr. Feiz & Associates is here for you.
