Pain Management

Chronic pain is a debilitating condition that affects approximately 100 million Americans.

The Bon Secours Neuroscience Institute, with four convenient locations, provides management of acute and chronic pain through special Pain Clinics. Contact us at 804-287-7574.

Bariatric (Surgical Weight Loss) Program

Obesity has become a primary health concern in our country today, with 69 percent of adult Americans categorized as overweight and 38 percent (roughly 79 million) classified as obese. In 2013, the American Medical Association voted to classify obesity as a disease. Its medical conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. It also plays a role in sleep apnea, hypertension, and degenerative joint disease.

At St. Mary’s Hospital, our bariatric surgeons perform the safest and most effective procedures. Because losing weight often is not as easy as it sounds, our program is focused on addressing obesity with advanced treatment strategies, research, and patient education.
