  • About Me

    Dr. Fitzer obtained a B.S. in applied physics at Christopher Newport University.  From there he proceeded to Eastern Virginia Medical School for his M.D. degree.  He completed general surgery residency at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia, which is where he developed an interest in the treatment of obesity.

    After residency, he completed an accredited, year-long fellowship in minimally-invasive bariatric surgery at the University of Missouri, where he received intensive training from several acknowledged laparoscopic surgery masters.

    In 2006, Dr. Fitzer entered private practice in Utica, New York, and operated at St. Luke's Hospital, which, with Dr. Fitzer's help, went on to be recognized by HealthGrades as having the very best bariatric surgery outcomes in all of New York State.  He practiced for six years in New York and performed some 1700 bariatric operations there before returning to Virginia in 2012.

    Dr. Fitzer is happy to be back.  Having devoted essentially 100% of his professional attention to obesity surgery since 2005, his goal is now to bring to Virginians the same high-level, compassionate care that he provided to New Yorkers for the better part of a decade.

    Dr. Fitzer has himself performed more than 2,500 minimally-invasive bariatric procedures.  He is the highest volume bariatric surgery provider in Northern Virginia.
