World-Class Weight Loss Surgery
Obesity is considered an epidemic in the US. While many people blame sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy, prepackaged food for the problem, this isn’t the only cause. There are many reasons that people gain weight and cannot lose it. Diet and exercise can help, but for a few people, these options don’t work as well as they need to. Severely obese people, who have a BMI of 40 or more, often need extra help, which is why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates. His office, conveniently located in Beverly Hills, is staffed by a compassionate and knowledgeable team who can help patients with weight loss surgery options like sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients want.
Dr. Feiz is a world-class surgeon, and one of the best weight loss surgeons in the United States. He not only specializes in weight loss procedures like the Lap Band or gastric sleeve, but he is also one of the few doctors who can perform sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. In rare cases, the Lap Band device does not work as it should, and it must be removed. Dr. Feiz knows that people who go through the Lap Band procedure can feel very discouraged when the device doesn’t work, which is why he learned to perform revision surgery – he wants patients to continue to lose weight and get healthy again.
If you need a band to sleeve revision, or if you just have questions about which weight loss surgery might work best for you, Dr. Feiz & Associates are here to help.
