  • About Me
    Over the past fourteen years, general surgery has made tremendous advances due to development of the Laparoscope. The laparoscope provides surgeons with a magnified operating field, and reduces the patient’s pain, recovery time, scars and hospital stay. Some of the laparoscopic procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, in which patient’s may go home the very same day. Dr. Naaman has been one of the surgeons who have been involved in the development of new laparoscopic equipment. Surgeries that are performed laparoscopically include: Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Roux-En-Y, Laparoscopic Reversal of Gastric bypass, Laparoscopic Adjustable Band, Open Gastric Bypass, Open Duodenal Swicth, Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (Gallbladder), Laparoscopic appendectomy, Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair, Laparoscopic Incisional hernia, and Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia, Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication, Bilateral Endoscopic sympathectomy (BETS) for hyperhydrosis, Laparoscopic Colon resections and Right Thoracoscopic Vagotomy for non healing gastric ulcers. Dr. Naaman has performed well over 8,000 laparoscopic surgeries since 1990. He has also performed about 1200 Bariatric procedures since 1995. Dr. Naaman also performs traditional open surgery. This includes; Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder), Appendectomy, Incisional hernia repairs, Ventral hernia repairs, and Inguinal hernia repairs. Gastric bypass Roux-En-Y, Reversal of Gastric bypass Roux-En-Y, Revision of previous Bariatric procedures, Revisions of existing Gastric bypass, Duodenal Switch (Bilopancreatic diversion), Colon resections, hemorrhoid repair using a staple procedure (decreases post-operative pain), and thoracic procedures. Dr. Naaman also performs breast surgery using state of the art imaging machines. Stereotactic biopsy is a surgical procedure that can get an accurate biopsy of a mass (even if it can not be felt during a breast exam) using a special needle and computerized imaging machine. If needed a modified radical mastectomies and breast lumpectomy can also be performed. Nuclear medicine advances has led to the Sentinel lymph node biopsies and resection of parathyroid adenomas. Some breast biopsies can be performed in the office using a specialized needle with some local anesthesic.

    I have met with Dr. Naaman once. He is a very pleasant gentleman was very thorough and answered all the questions that I had. He went over the procedure and after-care. I really liked him. His staff is wonderful and has been very helpful in More...

    Dr. Naaman did my surgery in 2005. He has since retired and my new dr. is Dr. Speigel.

    Sadly for all your pre WLS readers, Dr. Naaman has retired. He was a terrific surgeon not only for my WLS but for two subsequent procedures. I recommended him to several people and wish I could continue to do so.
