ABOUT DR. SEPEHR LALEZARI
As a bariatric and minimally invasive surgeon, Dr. Sepehr Lalezari, believes the procedures he performs is as much about the lives that are positively affected as it is about the weight loss or surgery itself.
To take someone who has struggled with something for their entire life, who is taking a multitude of medications, and then to see them be able to play with their kids, and go out and live a life that they couldn't before is very rewarding, he said.
Dr. Lalezari completed a bariatric and minimally invasive surgery fellowship (specialty training) at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, MD
, and is now opening an advanced bariatric and minimally invasive general surgery practice in Los Angeles
where he grew up.
At Johns Hopkins
, he learned the most cutting-edge procedures such as single-site surgery, robotic and endoscopic surgery truly incision-less surgery, he called it. Training at JHU was an honor and has put him in a unique position when starting a private practice.
Born in Iran
, Dr. Lalezari moved to California
with his family at age 4. With the help of a highly influential primary school teacher, he overcame early difficulty with learning the English language to become a high achiever, eventually graduating magna cum laude – and two years early – from UCLA
with a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience.
Always dedicated to education, he spent some time as a high school biology teacher, after which he set off on his journey to become a physician.
For his clinical training, Dr. Lalezari trained throughout the United States
, including Florida
, New York
, and at Minnesota's
prestigious Mayo Clinic. Although he studied neuroscience as an undergrad, he steered his career toward bariatrics and minimally invasive surgery after seeing the long-term effects that his care could provide, as well as the long-term relationships he could develop with patients similar to that of his primary care doctor growing up who first inspired him to pursue a career in medicine.
"With bariatric surgery, I love the relationships you develop with the patients," he said. "They're looking for a way out of their current situation, they've been fighting their entire lives, and you help them meet their goals. In the end, they're so happy. The relationships that develop with patients over time is why I got into medicine in the first place."
After graduation, Dr. Lalezari earned a general surgery residency at the Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati
program, and he ascended to the rank of Chief Resident. Following residency, he went on to complete his fellowship at Johns Hopkins
In surgery, his success is now measured in the magnitude by which his patients' lives are changed.
