The Lap Band Revision Surgery Expert
You may be severely obese and qualified for a weight loss surgery, but which one should you get? Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S, founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients just like you. He knows how important it is for each patient to have information, not just have a procedure prescribed to them. Dr. Feiz’s knowledgeable team can answer your questions, and also help you understand which procedure might suit your biology and personal needs the best. Many patients ask Dr. Feiz about gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, and he is happy to answer these sorts of questions.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the few bariatric surgeons who specialize in gastric sleeve after Lap Band. He trained in this procedure because he knows how important it is for a severely obese individual to continue losing weight, and how frustrating it can be if the Lap Band fails to do that. It is rare, but sometimes the Lap Band does not help the person lose enough weight, or it can erode and cause discomfort. When needed, Dr. Feiz is able to easily remove the band, and, when appropriate, he will perform a sleeve gastrectomy. This involves removing part of the stomach to create a permanently smaller “sleeve,” which helps the patient lose weight and feel satisfied after smaller meals.
