Shyam Lal Dahiya
Dr. Shyam Lal Dahiya is a board-certified general and laparoscopic surgeon who performs the most state-of-the-art method of bariatric surgery - the Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass. He has more than 20 years of experience in general and trauma surgery and is considered a leader in his field.
Dr. Dahiya's interest in gastric bypass surgery stems from his passion for micro surgical applications that minimize pain and increase recuperation. A new surgical approach unlike traditional weight loss surgery that makes one large incision, laparoscopic gastric bypass (minimally invasive) surgery makes four or five small, half-inch incisions to access the abdomen. A tiny video camera and small instruments are inserted into the incisions while surgeons view the operation on a television monitor.
"This recent and minimally invasive approach to bariatric surgery will provide the patient with a more rapid recovery, which allows patients to return to their normal activity faster," said Dr. Dahiya, a fellow of American College of Surgeons who has served as Chairman of Surgical Department at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach.
Dr. Shyam L. Dahiya, MBA, received his M.D. from Medical College Rohtak in India, and then completed his general surgery residency at Sinai Hospital, an affiliate of Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He then completed a fellowship in surgical oncology at Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research in Houston, Texas. Dr. Dahiya has extensive training and many years experience in laparoscopic surgery.
Dr. Dahiya was one of the first surgeons in Los Angeles to perform Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. His interest in laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery stems from a passion for applying minimally invasive techniques, in an effort to improve our patient's outcomes.
