Board certified in Surgery and Bariatric Medicine, Dr. David G. Davtyan is one of the most respected weight loss surgeons Los Angeles has to offer. He has a deeply personal understanding of his patients’ weight loss challenges. His empathy puts his patients at ease and makes them feel immensely comfortable as they embark on the exciting journey to lose weight and reclaim their health.
Dr. David Davtyan’s experience treating difficult cancers is one of the reasons he’s been such a successful weight loss surgeon. Because cancer can always come back, he is accustomed to treating his patients with careful, thoughtful and long-term follow-up care – something he continues to offer to his bariatric patients to this very day. While other weight loss surgeons focus on immediate results, Dr. David Davtyan is invested in your long-term health – which is why his patients are able to consistently reach their weight loss goals and maintain their new and healthy lifestyle for years.
Dr. David Davtyan achieved his medical degree from the esteemed UCLA School of Medicine, where he was trained to treat extremely difficult and metastatic cancer cases. For over ten years, he devoted his career to helping patients beat cancer – until he discovered bariatric surgery. The success he observed from the LAP-BAND procedure prompted him to focus his practice entirely on performing weight loss procedures to transform his patients’ lives. He went on to study bariatric surgery in Belgium, where the LAP-BAND was first introduced and became one of the first surgeons in the United States to offer the procedure once it achieved FDA approval in April of 2001.
