  • LivLite surgeon David G. Davtyan, MD, FACS, FICS

Dr. Davtyan specializes in Lap-Band surgery. This procedure is one of the least invasive approaches to obesity because neither the stomach nor the intestine is cut. Excess weight affects the health and livelihood of 60% of Americans. For many of us fighting obesity it is a lifelong struggle with battles won and battles lost. Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAP-BAND System) opens a new era in obesity treatment and gives us the technology for our ultimate victory.
