Dr. Payam Kerendian
Double Board Certified Physician in Family Practice and specializing in Bariatric Medicine
As a Bariatric Physician and member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, Dr. Kerendian is currently supervising a new sophistication in weight management by providing comprehensive nutritional and medical evaluation, treatment, and strategies for long-term prevention. Since 2006, Dr. Kerendian has helped his patients lose over 55,000 pounds by applying his revolutionary weight loss methodology.
But Dr. Kerendian’s leadership doesn’t stop at weight loss. Dr. Kerendian has established himself as a forward-thinker in pain management as well.
Through the use of an innovative brand of pain treatments including prolotherapy and trigger point injection therapy, Dr. Kerendian has helped hundreds of patients deal with the underlying causes of pain, rather than simply masking pain symptoms. With prolotherapy, Dr. Kerendian is able to stimulate a local inflammatory process around the damaged ligaments and tendons which increases the blood and nutrient supply to areas of pain allowing the tissues to repair themselves naturally.
Dr. Kerendian believes that a patient needs to be treated as a whole human being rather than different body parts or different systems.The effectiveness of his approach lies in his ability to listen to his patients before tailoring a personalized and sustainable plan for each individual.
Dr. Kerendian completed his education and received his medical degree with special emphasis in the musculoskeletal system. He then trained at one of the top rated family practice residency programs in the nation. San Bernardino County Hospital allowed him to treat multiple and complicated pathologies in patients from all aspects of life. He is certified as a knowledgeable physician with both the American Osteopathic Boards and American Medical Boards.
