Centers of Excellence
At Sentara, we are focused on quality and patient safety in everything we do. As such, we regularly pursue national accreditations that help us both measure ourselves against other top ranking health systems as we constantly work to improve our clinical programs and services. Weight loss surgery centers at Sentara are no exception.
After a rigorous review of clinical quality and safety, surgical outcomes, and overall performance, programs at Sentara CarePlex Hospital and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital have received designation as weight loss surgery "Centers of Excellence."
As part of our quality program, on-going support and information are provided throughout the weight loss process. This includes your physician, a dedicated program coordinator, and a consultation clinic to provide counseling, nutrition and fitness programs.
Weight Loss Surgery Centers
A comprehensive weight loss surgery center gives an obese patient several options for individual success. Our hospitals offer surgery for morbid obesity, including minimally invasive options for gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band surgery, and revisional gastric pouch reduction surgery (Natural Orifice Surgery).
The weight loss medical team is experienced with specialized training and benchmarked patient success rates. Ongoing support and information are provided throughout the process.
This includes in-depth pre-screening, preoperative informational seminars, counseling, nutrition and fitness programs, metabolic testing and support groups.
One of your most important considerations should be the experience of your surgeon. How many weight loss surgeries have they performed? Are they experienced in minimally invasive techniques? Do they have a low complication rate?
