The Leading Lap Band Revision Surgery Team
For people who are severely obese, losing weight and keeping it off is deeply important. Shedding pounds is not just about looking good, or fitting into an old pair of pants again – it is about living longer, and having a better quality of life. Having to deal with truly excessive weight means that people like you have a greater risk of developing comorbid diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, joint pain, and even depression. These conditions not only take years off your life, but limit your ability to enjoy living. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients overcome severe obesity and become healthy. He and his team specialize in bariatric procedures, and can help their patients make the decision between gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band.
Dr. Feiz is a leading specialist in Lap Band revision surgery. Although many people who have chosen the Lap Band to lose weight experience success, for other patients, the band simply doesn’t work. Perhaps it was installed too loose or too tight, which can lead to discomfort, acid reflux, and pain, and prevent the patient from losing the weight they need to lose. For other people, the band may work at first, but could begin to degrade over time, while the patient still needs to lose weight. In other cases, it may simply not produce the desired results. Dr. Feiz can help qualifying patients by removing the Lap Band, then performing a sleeve gastrectomy to permanently reduce the size of the stomach and produce added benefits.
Thanks to Dr. Feiz and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates, patients just like you can the help they need with a gastric sleeve after Lap Band. Contact them today.
