Gastric bypass surgery is performed to help morbidly obese patients lose significant amounts of weight.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss procedure in which a large part of the stomach known as the greater curve is surgically removed to restrict food intake.
Jeremy Korman, M.D., is the chief surgeon and medical director of L.A. Bariatrics, a certified and award-winning provider of weight-loss surgery. He has treated more than two thousand patients during his bariatric surgery career, and his greatest passion is helping them achieve better health, better fitness, and better lives.
Too often, people struggle with obesity without achieving success. Many people attempting to lose weight succeed, for a while. Often, though, the weight comes back — and many patients gain back more weight than they lost.
Bariatric surgery is a very effective solution for motivated patients when performed by a highly qualified, experienced, meticulous surgeon. At L.A. Bariatrics, we are one of the leading weight-loss surgery programs in Los Angeles, and our track record of safety, success, and satisfaction is excellent.
All treatment options are tailored to the individual patient, to best match the patient's goals and comfort level. This extends to post-operative care: our staff will devise a nutrition and exercise plan with you, specifically for you. All our patients share the drive to improve their health, but no two people are alike, and we make a long-term commitment to support every individual person who comes through our doors determined to better their health.
