Bariatric Weight-Loss Surgery

What Will You Gain When You Lose?

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.
