Why Choose Sentara?

At Sentara RMH Medical Center, we are focused on quality and patient safety in everything we do. As such, we regularly pursue national accreditations that help us measure our weight loss surgery program against other top ranking health systems, which motivates our team to constantly work to improve our clinical programs and services.

Our program is MBSAQIP accredited. This designation means that Sentara RMH has demonstrated compliance with MBSAQIP standards and is dedicated to high quality care for metabolic and bariatric surgery patients.

We offer laparoscopic gastric banding, a minimally-invasive surgical procedure designed to help patients lose weight gradually and effectively. The Lap-Band® procedure is as effective as gastric bypass, but with fewer complications. We also offer the gastric sleeve procedure, which is a permanent procedure that removes the majority of the stomach, leaving a small pouch or “sleeve” remaining.
