Weight Loss Education & Support

Understanding Weight Loss Surgery

Your decision to have weight loss surgery should be an informed one. At Reston Hospital Center, we'll help you understand procedures, answer your questions and give you all the resources you need for your weight loss journey.

Free Information Sessions

We offer regular information sessions for anyone considering weight loss surgery. Dr. Matthew Fitzer explains the surgical options available and the benefits of each.

The sessions are free but reservations are required. View dates and register online for an upcoming session or call 877.689.DOCS (3627).

The Importance of Support

Support groups give weight loss surgery patients an invaluable opportunity to share their personal experiences with weight loss and learn from others experience. For example, most people learn that weight loss surgery will not immediately resolve existing emotional issues or heal the years of damage that morbid obesity might have inflicted on their emotional well-being. Attend our support groups and learn how others are managing their emotional and physical barriers through their weight loss journey.
