The Healthiest Decision for Weight Loss
For many people, reaching a healthy weight means losing just a few pounds. However, or people who are severely obese, they must lose at least 100 pounds of excess body weight. People who have a BMI of 40 or more often struggle for years to keep weight off, without success. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates – he wanted to apply his world-class surgical skills to helping patients lose weight and keep it off with weight loss surgery. He and his caring, knowledgeable team specialize in many kinds of bariatric procedures, including gastric sleeve after Lap Band.
Dr. Feiz was a resident at the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, and his fellowship at the Mt. Sinai Medical Center. There, he focused on both bariatric surgery, and minimally-invasive surgical techniques. These techniques are important because the surgeon does not impact the patient’s body as much as traditional surgical procedures, so the patient is back on their feet faster after surgery. For severely obese individuals who are losing weight, this means starting their new diet and exercise routine sooner after surgery. Dr. Feiz’s years and skills and experience pay off for his patients, whether they undergo gastric sleeve, Lap Band revision surgery, or other procedure.
During the very first appointment, Dr. Feiz also works with his new patients to make sure that they know what their weight loss surgery options are. This is not just a matter of explaining the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, but really understanding how the surgery will impact the patient’s health long-term.
