Sentara Martha Jefferson Bariatric Care Center - 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. It's 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. Our dedicated bariatric surgeons, nurses, dietitians and clinic staff are with you every step of the way, from the preparation for surgery to the recovery and transition period following surgery. We look forward to meeting you and supporting you through your journey to health.
