Carilion New River Valley Medical Center has twice been nationally recognized as a Top 100 Performance Improvement Leader by Thomson Reuters. We emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and perform one type of bariatric surgery: laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, which creates a small pouch to hold food so you eat less but feel full sooner and longer.
A bariatric coordinator will help facilitate your appointments from pre to post-operative evaluation, education and follow up with licensed clinical psychologists, registered dieticians, exercise physiologists, diabetes educators, skilled laparoscopic surgeons and the support group coordinator. We emphasize an in-depth, pre-surgery screening process to help ensure that weight loss surgery is right for you. This option is a lifestyle change and we believe that education is the key to your success.
Our modern hospital facility, with scenic views of our valley’s pastoral setting, offers a roomy layout and restful atmosphere designed for your care and comfort.
