My new technique reduces the chance for leaks and lessens heartburn sometimes associated with post-operative Sleeve patients."
As the first surgeon in Southern California to perform the Gastric Sleeve surgery as an alternative to Gastric Bypass and Gastric Banding, Dr. Owens is the most experienced surgeon in Gastric Sleeve surgery in both the Los Angeles and Orange County areas.

We have come very far over the years, but there is always room for improvements."
Dr. Owens cites the importance of the doctor/patient relationship, especially in bariatric medicine. He works closely with his patients to get the results that they need.
