He went on to complete a six year General Surgery residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, and a one year laparoscopic weight loss surgery fellowship in New Jersey.
Dr. Oliak has always been interested in less invasive treatment approaches for medical problems. During his residency, he became interested in minimally invasive approaches to weight loss surgery. He felt that if weight loss surgery could be done laparoscopically through small incisions instead of a large incision, patients would greatly benefit.
More recently, Dr. Oliak has become interested in less invasive alternatives for fat removal. Coolsculpting® is an effective, FDA cleared, less invasive, and lower risk alternative to more invasive plastic surgery.
