The Right Weight Loss Choice for You
There’s no getting around it, weight problems are at beyond epidemic proportions nationwide. Two-thirds of adults are considered overweight, and over one-third are considered obese. However, losing weight can be a serious struggle, and severely obese individuals more often than not are simply unable keep the pounds off. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help people who severely obese, and who need to lose weight to avoid comorbid diseases. He is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the country, and his compassionate and knowledgeable team help their patients with all kinds of weight loss procedures, including band to sleeve revision.
Dr. Feiz and his team work with each patient as an individual. Everyone’s body is different, so everyone will respond to weight loss surgery a little bit differently. There are a wide variety of bariatric procedures available today, and Dr. Feiz makes sure his patients know the pros and cons of each one, so they can make the best choice. Because gastric sleeve and Lap Band are most popular right now, many patients ask him first about the benefits of Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy – Dr. Feiz will answer this, and even more, because patients who are involved in their weight loss will have better success.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the few bariatric surgeons in the country who specializes in Lap Band revision surgery. This procedure removes the band, then removes part of the stomach to permanently reduce the organ’s size. For patients who do not get great benefits from Lap Band and who qualify, this procedure can help them continue their weight loss journey.
