Doctor Category: Bariatric Surgery
Led by three board-certified surgeons and Hour Detroit Top Docs, Beaumont General and Bariatric Surgery and Beaumont Bariatric Associates provide patients with the most advanced surgical solutions, including bariatric surgery, and the best possible comprehensive care.
Located in Dearborn and Canton, the practices are staffed by a team of experts committed to providing the best possible treatments to meet all the surgical needs of their patients. They have expertise in advanced minimally invasive general and bariatric surgery, including weight-loss procedures such as gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and revisional bariatric surgery.
The doctors — Edward Mavashev, M.D., FACS, FASMBS; Daniel Bacal, M.D., FACS, FASMBS; and Nathan LaFayette, M.D., FACS, FASMBS — specialize in minimally invasive procedures and are fellowship-trained, board-certified general surgeons, as well as active members in the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgeons, and Society of American Gastroenterology and Endoscopic Surgeons. All the physicians have been selected this year by their peers as Top Docs.
Dr. Mavashev is the program director for bariatric surgery and is chief of surgery at Beaumont Hospital, Wayne. He has been in practice for more than 10 years, has done multiple presentations at local and national conferences, and is a multiyear Hour Detroit Top Doc. Dr. Bacal has been in practice for nearly 20 years and serves as the program director for bariatric surgery at Beaumont Hospital, Dearborn. He has earned the Hour Detroit Top Docs designation for several years, and has numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and presentations in national medical conferences. Dr. LaFayette, also an Hour Detroit Top Doc, has practiced for over five years and continues to publish articles in peer-reviewed journals, as well as chapters in a variety of surgical textbooks.
The three physicians are among the early adoptors of the da Vinci robotic-assisted platform in general surgery and have served as proctors in robotic surgery. Those interested in bariatric surgery are encouraged to attend a free weekly seminar or call their office. Visit beaumont.org/gbsd to learn more.
