The Weight Loss Struggle Ends Here
You’ve struggled with being severely obese for years. Your weight yo-yo’s up and down, but even when you lose weight, you never seem to be able to stay at a healthy weight. Sometimes, you gain back more weight than you lost. Your doctor is concerned about diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol, or other weight-related problems. If this sounds like you, do not despair. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates specifically to help patients like yourself, by offering the best weight loss surgery team for patients seeking Lap Band or sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles.
Dr. Feiz and his team have helped dozens of patients successfully lose extra pounds and stay at a healthy weight with weight loss surgery. There are several options for weight loss surgery, but the two most popular and most recommended are Lap Band, and gastric sleeve surgeries. The Lap Band is a medical device inserted around the stomach to create a smaller area for food, while the gastric sleeve does much the same thing, but permanently. Most patients who choose the Lap Band see genuine success with this procedure, and most patients who choose sleeve gastrectomy see the same success. However, some patients with Lap Bands may not experience the weight loss they need, so Dr. Feiz also has incredible training in band to sleeve revision.
Band to sleeve revision involves a surgeon performing a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band removal. There are very few occasions in which Dr. Feiz might need to perform this procedure, but he is highly versed in all of these scenarios and can help patients who are concerned about their Lap Bands for any reason.
