Meet The Team
Surgery is not an easy decision to make, and weight loss success requires a long-term commitment. Our experienced weight loss team provides individualized, quality care to help you understand – and implement – whatever it takes to safely achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. We want you to feel confident about your decision and be better prepared to succeed.
Fauquier Health offers a free, no-commitment, virtual informational seminar, designed to educate you on the benefits, risks and surgical options.

The Center for Weight Loss at Fauquier Health offers continuous support to help each individual patient deal with the physical, emotional and social problems that may accompany severe obesity. Our program is implemented by a multidisciplinary medical team that consists of our robotically-trained bariatric surgeon, bariatric navigator, registered dietitian, nursing staff, psychologists, a sleep doctor, and support staff. Team members work together to assess each patient’s unique needs to optimize success after surgery.
