Bariatric Surgery Center
Virginia Mason has been a designated Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence since 2006. This mark of distinction means that we provide the highest quality care and best outcomes for weight loss, including evaluation, surgery, and post-operative management. Managing your weight can be a lifelong journey. Obesity is a serious health threat. If you've struggled with extra pounds, we can help you see what may be underlying factors and support you in choosing steps to reach your ideal weight.
Central to these efforts is the Bariatric Surgery team, including Director Jeff Hunter, MD, Lily Chang, MD, and Mohan Mallipeddi, MD. The team works closely with the Virginia Mason Weight Loss Center to manage the serious health threat of obesity.
