Open surgery requires larger incisions to view and access tissue to perform gastrointestinal or bariatric procedures. While some procedures require open surgery, there are many that can be performed using minimally-invasive methods. Danny Shouhed, M.D. is a foregut specialist and board-certified general surgeon who specializes in minimally-invasive bariatric and gastrointestinal surgery through his practice in Los Angeles.
The gastrointestinal (GI) system is very complex, with many components that connect and work in synchronicity. Dr. Shouhed has spent his career focused on performing intricate GI surgeries while using minimally-invasive techniques. Dr. Shouhed is one of the country’s leaders in robotic GI and bariatric surgeries, using advanced technology to perform laparoscopic procedures.
