About University Bariatrics
Thank you for visiting us as part of your journey towards better health. The practice name is based on our founder, Dr. Amir Mehran, and his academic background as the past Chief of UCLA Bariatric Surgery. In an industry inundated with “quick fixes” and flashy sales pitches, he has strived to distinguish himself through an unwavering commitment to the three fundamental pillars of successful weight-loss surgery: patient education, patient preparation, and patient safety. These same guiding principles he established at UCLA have been carried over to his new private practice, University Bariatrics. This dedication to outstanding individual care is why patients seeking bariatric surgery consistently make University Bariatrics their practice of choice.
Proven Long-Term Bariatric Results
According to the National Institute of Health, “Only surgery has proven effective over the long-term for most patients with clinically severe obesity.” At University Bariatrics, we believe the goal of surgery isn’t simply to look “slim”, “thin”, or “light”, but to rid oneself of the many serious & life threatening risks associated with morbid obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, heart attack and stroke.
At University Bariatrics, we aim to educate and arm our patients with a full understanding of the road ahead. We don’t adhere to common assembly-line practices, as we feel strongly that they don’t lend themselves to positive sustainable results. Instead, we continue to commit ourselves to utilizing superior knowledge and surgical techniques to best serve patients pursuing bariatric surgery.
Over one thousand patients have trusted the experience and expertise found at University Bariatrics & its founder, Dr. Amir Mehran. As a well-known & respected member of the California bariatric surgery community, he is credited with over 200 surgical publications & invited bariatric presentations, and considered to be an early pioneer and champion for vertical sleeve gastrectomy in Southern California.
