General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland.
Bariatric surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Long term weight loss through standard of care procedures is largely achieved by altering gut hormone levels that are responsible for hunger and satiety, leading to a new hormonal weight set point.
Dr. Rezvani is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) and Fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (FASMBS). He is also an active member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). Licensed to practice in the states of Virginia and Pennsylvania, he remains affiliated with Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia, Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center in Woodbridge, Virginia, and Mary Washington Weight Loss Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
