Now I have no more diabetes, and sleep apnea.

I am so grateful to Dr David Davtyan, that I wake up every morning, and ask God to bless him! I had the surgery five months ago, it was very smooth. Dr. Davtyan’s team was very nice and they made me feel very comfortable. Now I have no more diabetes, and sleep apnea. I passed my treadmill test yesterday without passing out! I feel so much younger and happier now that I lost 30 lbs! I enjoy visiting Dr. Davtyan’s office; they are like a family to me! There is no out of pocket cost from me, as it was covered by Medicare.

I would refer anyone who wants to get lap band done to Dr. David Davtyan

I was referred to Dr. David Davtyan by my friends and family. We trust him completely. My lap band surgery was simple; I was back on my feet in 1 week. Dr. Davtyan staff is knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Davtyan. I was 50lbs overweight 2 years ago. Now I can get around much more easily, I have a better esteem. I did not use to like socializing; now I want to go out more. Lap band is the safest weight loss surgery. I am a self paid patient. I would refer anyone who wants to get lap band done to Dr. David Davtyan, no question asks, absolutely!

Long Term Weight Loss-Contrave, a New Drug, after Laparoscopic Surgery

Long term weight loss is a desired goal for obese individuals. Individuals with a BMI (Body Mass Index) score of over 40 are considered morbidly obese. Obesity causes diseases such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, sleep apnea, liver and pulmonary disease, and others. It can also lead to anxiety, depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, insomnia, social isolation and sexual dysfunction.

Morbid obesity for example, can be effectively treated with laparoscopic surgery such as the lap band. Then the weight loss can be maintained with the help of medications such as the upcoming Contrave (developed by Orexigen Therapuetics, Inc). Contrave contains two appetite suppressants: naltrexone HCL and bupropion HCL.

When an individual is going through initial weight loss, the brain is conditioned to trigger hunger in the body and to slow down the metabolism. These hunger signals are counter-productive to weight loss, and excess weight could return as one relents to the demands of the brain. In order to maintain long term weight loss, one option is to use Contrave. Its active ingredient bupropion HCL initiates the weight loss, and its naltrexone maintains the weight loss. Bupropion is a widely-prescribed antidepressant and smoking cessation medication; naltrexone is a treatment for alcohol addiction. The two ingredients work to inhibit the neural circuits in the brain that cause hunger.

Dr. David Davtyan, an expert in laparoscopic surgery, has extensive experience helping patients achieve long term weight loss.
