In recognition of our strong, multidisciplinary commitment to bariatric care, Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, in Roanoke, Virginia, has been designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
We offer three types 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.
- Gastric Bypass, a procedure to make your stomach smaller and resulting in less absorption of calories.
- Gastric Sleeve, another way to make your stomach smaller so you consume less food but still feel full.
As you make your way through this important life transition, you’ll also do so in comfort at Roanoke Memorial. Our facility was recently named as one of the top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the US. While you prepare and recover from bariatric surgery, you can look out your wrap-around windows at the lush surrounding greenery of your community.
