Weight loss is a difficult challenge that millions of Americans struggle with every day. If you have been trying to lose a significant amount of weight (more than 100 lbs.) for more than a year, you might be an excellent candidate for weight loss surgery at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center.

Our bariatric surgery program offers minimally invasive techniques for weight loss surgery, including laparoscopic gastric banding and gastric bypass.

The weight loss surgeons at Northern Virginia Medical Center have performed more than 300 weight loss surgeries each year, and have created a supportive environment for patients so they can keep the weight off and live healthier lives. Patients receive care from specialized, experienced surgeons, nurses, operating room personnel and anesthesiologists, plus the full support team of medical specialists and registered dietitians.
