Serving patients seeking bariatric surgery with Lap-Band/gastric sleeve and ORBERA Gastric Balloon/Obalon Balloon System in Los Angeles (LA), Beverly Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, Ontario, Upland, Inland Empire, Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, San Fernando Valley, Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, and Newport beach in California and the surrounding area.

Dr. David G. Davtyan is one of the most experienced Lap Band and gastric sleeve surgeons in the United States and a prominent and highly respected surgeon in Los Angeles (LA) and Rancho Cucamonga. He possesses a deep understanding of the gastric banding procedure because he is a Lap Band patient himself.

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.

Dr. Davtyan is skilled and experienced in sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve, a procedure in which a portion of the stomach is removed to create a smaller stomach, known as a “sleeve”. The goal of the procedure is to reduce the amount of food the patient is able to consume, thereby causing the patient to feel full quicker than before, and lose weight safely within a few months after surgery.

effective procedure in Los Angeles.

In addition to Lap Band, Dr. Davtyan 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 also offers the Obalon Balloon System. This FDA-approved, non-surgical gastric balloon is swallowed in capsule form and takes up space in the stomach to reduce caloric intake. Three balloons are used during a six-month treatment and patients lose nearly twice as much weight as those who simply diet and exercise. Studies show 89 percent of weight lost with the balloon was kept off six months after the end of treatment. The Obalon Balloon System is fully reversible, very safe and well tolerated.

Dr. Davtyan has written and published several Lap Band related articles for numerous peer—reviewed medical journals. He has also written and published several Lap Band related articles for numerous peer—reviewed medical journals.

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.”

What Do Dr. Davtyan’s Patients Say?

“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
