Dr. Davtyan is now performing this
effective procedure in Los Angeles.
Dr. Davtyan studied the Lap Band procedure in Brussels, Belgium where it was first introduced. He performed his first Lap Band operation in October 2001 in Brussels with one of the Lap Band pioneers, Professor Guy-Bernard Cadiere. Dr. Davtyan became one of the first surgeons in the United States to offer Lap Band surgery after it was approved by the FDA in April 2001. In addition to Lap Band, Dr. Davtyan also offers the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon to his patients. This minimally invasive gastric procedure places a soft silicone balloon in the patient's stomach, limiting its space and decreasing feelings of hunger for the patient.
Dr. Davtyan is currently on the Editorial Advisory Board of Obesity Help magazine (OH), a well-known publication that offers support and provides education to the millions of people worldwide who suffer from obesity. He has also written and published several Lap Band related articles for numerous peer-reviewed medical journals.
Dr. Davtyan sees patients at his Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Rancho Cucamonga, Glendale and Orange County clinics and operates at affiliated hospitals and outpatient centers.

A Word from Dr. Davtyan:
"After fighting obesity for many years and not achieving any long-term weight loss results through diets, exercise and medications, I learned about a new weight loss procedure, Lap Band surgery. The Lap Band System offered many advantages that other weight loss surgeries or treatments did not offer.
The Lap Band procedure improved my health and changed my life. After living with the Lap Band, I developed a profound interest in this revolutionary procedure. I studied the procedure with Lap Band pioneer Guy-Bernard Cadiere, in Brussels, and became one of the first doctors to perform the Lap Band procedure in the United States following its FDA approval in 2001.
Undergoing the Lap-Band procedure was the best decision I have ever made to solve my weight problems and improve my quality of life. People who suffer from obesity now have access to a safe, minimally invasive, long-term weight loss procedure, Lap Band surgery. Lap Band surgery is my passion and my personal victory against obesity."

"Even though it is a strange way to describe it, my bariatric surgery with Dr. Davtyan was an absolute delight from start to finish. After spending over a year looking at the possibilities, I decided all the popular methods were just too extreme and scary for me. Then my friend told me about Dr. Davtyan and surgery. Suddenly, it all made sense. The staff is kind, helpful and supportive. They were always friendly and courteous. The nursing staff made the process easy. Yes, actually easy! The atmosphere was very positive; it was clear they all knew exactly what they were doing. They quickly put me at ease. Dr. Davtyan is a doll. He made it clear that he is available at any time and he really means it! A week after surgery, I am in great shape and am looking forward to a healthier future, thanks to Dr. Davtyan." Carol
"Having gastric banding has changed my life. The emotional stress of yo-yo dieting is no longer there; I can now enjoy food without worry. Thanks to Dr. Davtyan and the "band," now for the first time I feel that I am the person I was meant to be." Tanya
"Finally my dream of wearing a size 6-8 has come true. I love my new look. I got back my self-esteem and my self-confidence, and I owe all this to Dr. David Davtyan. He is the best with his golden fingers. I am very thankful to him for what he made me. Today, I'm proudly going out and looking fantastic. He gave me a new life, a new look and a new self-confidence. Thank you, Dr. Davtyan. You are the best of the best." Rima
