Your Best Option for Long Term Health
Many adults in America carry around extra pounds. This means they are more susceptible to health problems down the road. While most of these individuals can lose weight with a diet and exercise plan, for people who are severely obese, it isn’t that simple. Losing weight and keeping it off is a constant battle that these individuals often feel they lose. Fortunately, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help these patients with weight loss surgery. As one of the best weight loss surgeons in the US, Dr. Feiz specializes in Lap Band revision surgery as well as other bariatric procedures that help his patients stay healthy and keep losing weight.
For most severely obese individuals, the Lap Band procedure works well. However, in some rare cases, the surgeon does not implant the device correctly. This can lead to slipping, acid reflux, or other side effects because the Band is too tight or too loose. Because Dr. Feiz specializes in gastric sleeve after Lap Band, he is able to remove the problem device, then permanently reduce the size of the patient’s stomach using sleeve gastrectomy. That way, the patient can continue their weight loss journey, without the side effects.
When you go to your first appointment with Dr. Feiz, he works closely with you so that you understand not just the benefits of gastric sleeve vs. Lap Band, but all of your weight loss surgery options. He knows that educated patients make better health decisions, and he wants to help you.
