Southern California's own La Peer Health Systems has announced the arrival of a new bariatric surgery unit in Los Angeles. This new department will focus on assisting patients in need of achieving their weight loss goals through different surgical procedures including the lap band and sleeve treatment.

Dr. Jamshid Nazarian will be assisting in the department and hopes to help as many new patients as possible. “I'm thrilled and very excited to finally get the department up and running. It means a lot to me and other physicians who will get the opportunity to help more people achieve an ideal and healthy weight.”

Before the introduction of the new bariatric department, La Peer Health Systems focused on other aspects of medicine including orthopedics, gastroenterology, head and neck, urology, ophthalmology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, gynecology, and spinal surgery.

“The start of the new bariatric department at La Peer Health Systems really feels like the missing piece of the puzzle. We have so many tremendous minds and areas of specialization, bringing bariatric surgery into the mix will help us reach out to a group of patients who we couldn't previously help,” said Dr. Nazarian.

The goal of the new bariatric department will be to assist patients struggling with obesity.

“The ideal treatment options to help those struggling with weight loss are the lap band procedure and the sleeve procedure. I perform the lap band surgery with the help of a laparoscopic camera, which helps me visualize exactly what I need to do and also results in a quicker recovery time for the patient because of the lap band's minimally invasive nature.”
