The Specialists for Sleeve Gastrectomy in Los Angeles
If you have a body mass index of 40 or greater, you may qualify for weight loss surgery. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is Southern California’s leading specialist in bariatric procedures that can help you lose weight and keep it off. Dr. Feiz founded Dr. Feiz & Associates because he understands that people who are severely obese have a difficult time losing weight and keeping it off. He gathered a compassionate, skilled team to help him manage not only his patient’s surgery, but also their care before and after the procedure. If you are interested in a Lap Band, gastric sleeve, or even band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz & Associates may be your very best choice.
Lap Band is one of the most popular procedures right now, because the band is easy to install, and does not change the basic workings of the digestive system. However, in some rare cases, a patient may not experience all the benefits of the Lap Band. This is because the band could have been installed incorrectly, or can erode over time. Sometimes, it simply doesn’t produce all of the desired results. These cases are rare, but Dr. Feiz specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band to help these patients continue to lose weight. During the procedure, he removes the band and creates a permanently small stomach “sleeve” through sleeve gastrectomy. Patients can then typically continue their weight loss journey and reach their goal weight.
Whether you need a revision procedure, or simply have questions about bariatric options like sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, Dr. Feiz & Associates is here to help.
