About Dr. Oliak

Why Choose Our Orange County Weight Loss Surgery Program?

Bariatric surgeons and programs are not all the same. Different surgeons and programs have different ways of doing surgery (e.g. sleeve size, dimensions) and patient care (education, follow-up, support).

These differences result in differences in patient outcomes. Published studies make clear that some surgeons and programs achieve much better weight loss results and much lower complication rates than others.*

In Dr. Oliak’s view, the best way to choose a surgeon and program is by actual patient outcomes – weight loss and complication statistics. Other parameters (convenience of location, online reviews, word-of-mouth, insurance, etc.) are not reliable indicators of actual patient outcomes.

Dr. Oliak’s #1 goal, since starting his career in 2002, has been to achieve the best outcomes possible for his patients. For the outcomes that matter most – weight loss, early major complications (e.g. leak), and late complications (e.g. acid reflux, reoperation) – Dr. Oliak’s statistics beat the industry benchmarks, often by a wide margin.*

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight Loss Surgery (also known as bariatric surgery, or obesity surgery) is by far the most effective and most lasting treatment for obesity. The two most commonly performed weight loss surgeries are gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

Weight loss surgery works by changing the biology that regulates bodyweight. In effect, weight loss surgery changes the bodyweight “set-point” to a new, lower, healthier weight.

This biology change is what makes weight loss surgery so compelling. Obesity is a disease of weight regulation, and weight loss surgery changes the biology of weight regulation. No nonsurgical method of weight loss does this.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery (also known as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve, vsg) is the most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 70-75% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Why is gastric sleeve surgery so popular? Because it works very well for weight loss, improves or resolves weight-related medical problems, and is less invasive and lower risk than gastric bypass surgery, which is the primary alternative weight loss operation.

About outcomes – gastric sleeve patient outcomes (weight loss results, complication rates) vary over a wide range between individual surgeons and programs. For this reason, your choice of surgeon and program is an important decision!

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery (also known simply as gastric bypass) is the 2nd most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 20-25% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Gastric bypass surgery, similar to sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is highly effective for weight loss, and for the improvement or resolution of weight-related medical issues. Gastric bypass surgery is particularly effective for the treatment of acid reflux and diabetes.

About outcomes – gastric bypass patient outcomes (weight loss results, complication rates) vary over a wide range between individual surgeons and programs. For this reason, your choice of surgeon and program is an important decision!

The cost? Losing weight and gaining health is more attainable than you think.
