Thank you for visiting us as part of your journey towards better health. Our practice name reflects its founder, Dr. Amir Mehran’s, academic background as the past Chief of the UCLA Bariatric Surgery program and the expertise he has accumulated over a decade of dedication to the field of metabolic surgery. In an industry inundated with “quick fixes” and flashy misleading sales pitches, he has strived to distinguish himself through an unwavering commitment to the three fundamental pillars of successful weight-loss surgery: patient education, preparation, and safety. These same guiding principles 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 Results
According to the National Institute of Health, “Only surgery has proven effective over the long-term for most patients with clinically severe obesity.” Metabolic surgery is a significant life altering event. 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. In most cases, the decision to pursue surgery follows years of frustration and, in some cases, depression after numerous unsuccessful dieting attempts. Likewise, the decision to undergo metabolic surgery, should never be taken lightly, or without a set of realistic expectations. At University Bariatrics, we aggressively 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.
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy and More…
When performed properly, weight loss surgery is indeed a highly effective tool to significantly improve patients’ long-term health and quality of life. Before making the decision to undergo surgery, though, prospective bariatric patients should first be certain that they’re receiving the very best care. 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.
