Welcome to the most experienced bariatric surgery center on the East Coast! Serving patients in Virginia, Maryland, and the metropolitan Washington DC area.
Welcome to Obesity Surgery Center!
Having the RYGBP I can honestly say was the best, best decision I have ever made for myself. I have lost over 155 pounds since my surgery. I went from a size 32 jeans to a size 6. My BMI went from 50 to 23.5. It feels amazing. I am off my high cholesterol medicine and I feel great. I have a lot more self-confidence and I love clothes shopping now. THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION awarded me with the lifestyle change award 2 years in a row. I feel like I have gotten my life back and that I am a much better Mom and wife. I must say thank you to Dr. Anez and staff. I just cannot say enough good things about them.
As the founder of the OBESITY SURGERY CENTER, Dr. Osvaldo Anez has performed over 4,000 bariatric procedures. With vast experience performing the mini-incision Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGBP), Dr. Anez recently expanded his service offering to include the Adjustable Gastric Band procedure. The center excels in comprehensive patient support, providing robust aftercare that includes counseling by bariatric dieticians, dedicated physician assistants and nurses, monthly support groups, and web page service. Additionally, the center has an extensive panel of physicians such as cardiologists, pulmonologists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and physical therapists to whom it refers patients, when necessary.
Throughout the past twenty six years, Dr. Anez perfected his technique for open RYGBP and ultimately developed the mini-incision RYGBP which demonstrates numerous benefits:
Incision approximately 3.5” to 4.0” long (less pain and hernias)
Procedure completed in 30 to 40 minutes (less complications)
Hospital stay is 2 to 3 days
Procedure is reversible
Cost is lower
Notably, the Obesity Surgery Center's broad experience and superior results were instrumental in the qualification of FAIR OAKS HOSPITAL as a BARIATRIC CENTER OF EXCELLENCE, certified by the AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR METABOLIC AND BARIATRIC SURGERY. OSC's doctors are among the most trusted bariatric surgeons in Virginia.
Morbid obesity is a serious and increasingly common disease that represents a severe handicap and causes major health issues: Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension, High Cholesterol and Triglycerides, Metabolic Syndrome, and Arthritis. Bariatric Surgery offers the most consistent, long-term weight loss and the highest resolution rate of co-morbidities. The most commonly performed bariatric procedure is the RYGBP. It has been performed for over 40 years and continues to be the “GOLD STANDARD” for weight loss surgery.
