Dr. Ara Keshishian believes that educating his patients is one of the keys to their success.  Therefore, we have put together our video library. It contains recorded webinars, educational videos, and segments of actual surgical videos which are narrated.  The  topics covered include  Duodenal Switch, Sleeve Gastrectomy, RNY Gastric Bypass Revisions, Adjustable Gastric Band Revisions, Sleeve to Duodenal Switch Revisions, and  nutritional issues. Additionally General Surgery  and Anti Reflux surgery is also detailed. We hope that you find the videos informational and helpful.

You can also find additional information regarding related topics under our Blog tab. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 818-812-7222, via e-mail at or by filling in the online form here.
