Victory Over Obesity
For too many obese or severely obese people, weight loss is a life-long struggle. Medical professionals agree that being overweight has a negative impact on health, and the more overweight a person is, the more they will suffer in the long term. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help obese patients make the best choice for weight loss, which can often involve weight loss surgery. Dr. Feiz and his team help patients make the best choice, whether they want to know the benefits of Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, or they want a band revision surgery.
Dr. Feiz has years of experience and training that help his patients make the right choice for themselves. During the very first consultation, Dr. Feiz discusses options with patients. Many choose the Lap Band, because it is both reversible when necessary, and can help patients rapidly lose weight by making the stomach smaller. However, other patients may choose the gastric sleeve procedure, which permanently reduces the size of the stomach. This not only helps patients eat less, but removes the part of the stomach that produces ghrelin, the “hunger hormone,” so hunger pangs and cravings are reduced as well. For patients who struggle combating ghrelin, or who suffer other side effects, Dr. Feiz offers Lap Band revision surgery to remove the Band and create the gastric sleeve.
