We understand that weight loss is about much more than numbers on a scale, and we celebrate these inspiring individuals who made their health a priority with bariatric surgery.
If you're considering bariatric surgery, trust Virtua’s nationally accredited bariatric surgery program in South Jersey for the complex range of care you need for weight loss that lasts a lifetime. Our attentive team supports you as you make the decision to have surgery, as you prepare for lifestyle and diet changes in the months before surgery and, after surgery, as you continue on your weight-loss journey.
If you're ready to see what you gain when you lose, call 1-888-VIRTUA.
When you choose to have bariatric surgery at Virtua, you are choosing a program that is nationally accredited as a Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Center designated by Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
This means that Virtua Memorial and Virtua Marlton have been acknowledged for providing and supporting quality improvement and patient safety efforts for metabolic and bariatric surgery patients. Our accredited programs have successfully demonstrated that they meet patient needs by providing multidisciplinary, high-quality, patient-centered care. Our bariatric surgery program coordinator and nurse navigators are specially trained to assist patients on their journey toward weight loss. The team guides patients through Virtua’s continuum of clinical, behavioral and nutritional care.
There are four types of bariatric procedures offered at Virtua:
• Sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve)
• Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
• Duodenal switch
• Adjustable gastric band (Lap-band)
We also offer revisional surgery, which is used to modify a previous bariatric procedure.
