At Sentara, we view weight loss surgery as a tool - one you can use, along with healthy eating, exercise and healthy behaviors - to help you manage your weight. Weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery is the first step in the journey to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. And with a healthy weight comes a wealth of benefits, like normal blood sugars, lower blood pressure, more active days and more restful nights.
Many of our weight loss surgery centers are nationally accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), and all have a track record of excellent clinical outcomes and successful patient experiences, thanks to our team of experienced surgeons.
Our dedicated team consists of surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, mental health professionals, dietitians and clinic staff who are with you every step of the way. From your preparation for surgery to your recovery and transition period following surgery, we look forward to meeting you and supporting you through your journey to health.
