Choosing weight loss surgery in Northern Virginia is a lifelong commitment to attaining better health and a decision to be made with care. StoneSprings Hospital Center offers education, support and experience to help you make that decision. When choosing which surgery option is right for you, our bariatric surgeons consider and discuss your individual needs and medical history. They conduct a thorough medical evaluation and help you create a nutrition and exercise follow-up plan to increase chances of success.
At StoneSprings Hospital, nearly all surgical weight loss procedures are performed using minimally invasive or laparoscopic techniques. This means major operations, such as gastric bypass surgery, can be performed through tiny incisions with specialized miniature surgical instruments. The result: reduced postsurgical pain, shortened hospital stays, shorter overall recovery time and lowered risk of complications and infection.
These procedures have been shown in long-term medical studies to help patients safely, effectively and permanently lose over 50 percent of their excess weight, improving health, mobility and quality of life. The weight loss surgical procedures performed at StoneSprings Hospital are:
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery*
- Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy*
- Endoscopic bariatric procedures*
- Robotic gastric bypass surgery*
- Robotic sleeve surgery*
- Revisional bariatric surgery, performed to alter or repair a previous weight loss surgery because of poor weight loss, weight regain or complications
*The information provided on each procedure are guidelines. Variances in treatment are possible according to each surgeon's preference.
