Weight Loss Seminar

With weight loss, it’s not so much about what you’ll lose, but rather what you’ll gain ‒ a way to improve your quality of life. For those facing the struggles and frustrations of living with obesity, the Sentara Weight Loss Surgery Center offers surgical solutions such as sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric banding, gastric bypass and revisional procedures.
