Keeping You Safe
At GW Hospital, your safety and health are our top priority. That’s why we put safety protocols in place for in-office visits, including enhanced disinfection of high-traffic areas, physical distancing in the lobby and waiting areas, and required masking of all patients, visitors and staff at all times. The hospital regularly cares for patients with highly infectious disease and we continue to follow best practice guidelines to identify, isolate and care for COVID-19 patients, as well as other patients with potentially infectious disease.
Choose from a range of surgical options
Weight-loss surgery can cure chronic health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. There is a range of weight-loss surgical options and many are done with minimally invasive methods. We will help determine which option is best for you.
Working with you during every step of your journey
Our comprehensive weight-loss program is not just about the surgery. We work with you before your procedure to help you prepare, and after your procedure to maintain your weight and wellness. It’s a journey and we partner with our patients the entire way.
