About Us

 

Choosing an experienced and knowledgeable surgeon is the most important decision a patient can make.

When choosing a surgeon it’s critical to ask the right questions For example: What are his qualifications? How long has he been doing this particular procedure? Where did he study? How well is he acknowledged in the medical community?

And, in the case of bariatric surgery… How well does he understand your ongoing frustration with weight-loss?

The surgeon you choose should be the best when it comes to expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness.

The LAP-BAND® procedure was developed in Brussels by Dr. Guy-Bernard Cadiere, a world-renowned pioneer of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. Dr. David Davtyan was so impressed with the procedure’s safety and remarkable success, he not only became one of the first surgeons to travel to Belgium to learn the technique from Dr. Cadiere, but he also had the procedure himself. When it received FDA approval in April 2001, Dr. David Davtyan became one of the first U.S. surgeons to offer the Lap-Band surgery, and the first in California to perform the procedure at an outpatient surgery center. Dr. David Davtyan also performs Sleeve Gastrectomy and Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS).
