Virginia Bariatric Surgery Center is a specialty surgery practice focused exclusively on the minimally-invasive surgical treatment of morbid obesity. We are located in Reston, Virginia, a short drive from Washington, D.C, and we serve patients in Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, and West Virginia.
Dr. Fitzer, the center’s director, is an ASMBS Center of Excellence surgeon who performs all of the major weight-loss operations: gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and the LAP-BAND. We also perform revision surgery, and we are experts at helping adjustable gastric band patients with inadequate weight loss. Our team’s goal is to provide world-class surgical outcomes with the highest level of patient satisfaction.
We prepared this website with the goal of informing the individual who is interested in learning more about obesity surgery. We explain obesity, the indications for surgery, and the broad strokes of the different surgical options and life after surgery. Our website won’t provide a complete education on bariatric surgery, but it’s a good start. Afterward, if you decide that you are interested in learning more, our seminars – whether in-person or online – provide an excellent opportunity to continue to your education.
If you have questions, we would be delighted to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
