RealSelf Patient Reviews of David G. Davtyan, MD, FACS


David G. Davtyan MD, FACS, FICS

Fighting obesity can be a lifelong struggle.

I know. I was there. After struggling with obesity for many years, unable to achieve any long-term weight oss through diets, exercise and medications, I discovered an exciting, new weight loss procedure: Lap Band surgery.

After living with the Lap Band and experiencing rapid success, I developed a profound interest in this revolutionary procedure. I studied with LapBand 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.

Lap Band surgery is my passion and my personal victory against obesity. I care deeply about the success of each and every one of my patients and I am committed to helping them throughout the process and beyond.”
