Dr. Osvaldo Anez, MD, F.A.C.S., F.I.C.S.
Dr. Anez has been doing Bariatric and General Surgery for 30 years. In 2006 Dr. Anez was recognized as one of America’s Top Surgeons for General, Laparoscopic & Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Anez received his medical degree from the National University of La Plata, Argentina.
When I first met Dr. Anez a couple of years ago I remembered he was very soft spoken and smiley. He was all business and he talked to me about the procedure and walked me step by step through the diagram of the surgery he was going to perform. He used colored pencils to show the differences in the organs and wrote down all the steps. He seemed a bit \”robotic\” in his presentation and made me think to myself, wow he has been doing this for a really long time. He was very scripted and didn’t really venture off…
My first impression was…AWESOME! From the minute I walked through the door, I felt like I was in the right place. Since this was my initial consult, I only met Nicole, Ann, and Dr. Anez. They were so awesome, so down to earth, and just easy to talk to. They answered all of my questions. Dr.Anez asked me questions, allowed me to ask questions, and took time to explain the surgery…risks and all!
I actually haven’t met Dr. Anez yet since he’s been out of the office each time I’ve had an appointment. So far I’ve worked closely with Tiffany, who is his fabulous physician’s assistant, and Leo the insurance coordinator. Everyone has been friendly and supportive.
I had my surgery 2 years ago March. All I can say is Dr Anez is a life saver. He is one of the best Dr’s I know. He was extremely patient and very helpful is his staff. I was very concerned with the whole process and wondered if I was making a mistake that would change my life forever. Welll the surgery changed my life but IT WAS DEFINATELY NOT A MISTAKE…. THANK YOU DR ANEZ…..
My surgery is scheduled for September 7, 2010. I have to admit I am a little nervous. I start all my consults, tests and labs this week and next. I can’t believe I have finally been approved and the ball is rolling. Dr. Anez and his staff have been extremely nice. Leo had my paperwork all together on Monday to send to my insurance company and the next day he called with the good news that I was approved. Marylou explained all the consults, tests and labs that I needed to have done. Vonzie at FairOak Nova actually schedule everything…
Dr. Anez is a laid back, smooth physician and I love he and his staff to pieces. He makes you feel comfortable, explains all the details of surgery very well and has complete faith in his staff which also puts your mind as ease. His bedside manner was extremely positive, he stresses aftercare and it’s importance. My experience has been nothing but good and I would rate him 10 out of 10. I have no problem recommending him for anyone considering WLS.

I first met Dr. Anez at a seminar at Fair Oaks in the summer of 2009. I was impressed but scared. About a month later, I called and made my first appt and it was great. His staff was nice and friendly and Dr. Anez was very helpful and exciting. I can’t wait to move forward. After 6 months of supervised dieting and weight lost, I’m finally approved. No problems from the insurance company!!! December 14th….Here I come!
When I first thought of having the surgery it was almost 10 years ago. It fell through, and I had to put it on the back burner. I have since been through most of the process again, and am working toward a surgery date. I like Dr. Anez, he is a very compassionate man, and knows his stuff. I am almost there! I have one more appointment before I start my pre-op testing. I will attend a nutrition class on October 20. I am still so excited, I cannot believe that it is all coming together.
Wonderful experience and very knowledgeable….

Dr. Anez and his office staff have been great! The office was very quick in submitting all of my documents to my insurance company. My approval came 3 days after submittal. Dr. Anez was very understanding and honest. At my consultation I was unsure whether to have the band or bypass and he went over what type of procedure and why he thought it was best for me and the weight loss goals I had. The day of surgery, I was extremly nervous in tears and he was so comforting that everything would be ok and it was. He came…
Having a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass was by far one of the most important decisions in my life. I can honestly say it was best best decision I have ever made for myself!! Dr. Anez and staff made it all possible for me over 3 years ago. They gave me the tools I needed to be successful on my weight loss journey, which included all the right information on the surgery itself , on nutrition and on exercise. To this day I continue with the rules that must be adhered to in order to be successful. It is sometimes a challenge…
I am one year post-surgery (mini-incision Roux-en-Y), and am within just a pound or two of my goal. I have had no complications, no issues, almost no hunger… only regret is I waited so long to do it. I kept promising myself I’d lose it with dieting and exercise alone. If you’re worried, or wondering, let me just say, Dr Anez and his staff are FANTASTIC. I highly recommend it. I’m healthy, happy, and in the best shape of my life, all thanks to Dr Anez and his staff. I wish anybody who is making this decision the best of…
Best thing I ever did for myself
Ten years ago today, August 12, I had the Gastric Bypass Surgery at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, performed by Dr Anez. On that date I weighed 214 lbs. Today, ten years later, I weigh 102 lbs and loving it. Thank you so much Dr. Anez for giving back to me the fun of living and enjoying my life.
Should have done it sooner
I needed a knee replacement and my surgeon preferred that I lose weight prior to the surgery. I thought it had to do with the new knee but it was because I needed the ability to hoist myself around. After trying to lose the weight myself I had to come to the realization that I needed help. Once you’re over 50 the weight gain just seems to pick up speed. I am 108 pounds down since 3/2014 and wish I had started sooner. There’s no shame in having to get help. I wanted gastric bypass because I didn’t want it…
Wish I’d done it sooner!
I had been contemplating some kind of bariatric surgery for almost 20 years. I finally decided in June of 2014 that I would have the RNY. I knew of Dr. Anez and had even gone to see him before on one of my 6 journeys toward bariatric surgery. (He is over 60 miles from where I live.) I backed out each time, except this one. Some friends of mine had also had Dr. Anez as their surgeon and since I research everything, I saw that he was the best of the best! So, on October 21, 2014 my new life…
Dr. Anez changed my life!! I feel so blessed to have a second chance at life. This is the best decision I have ever made and I'm truly thankful for my tool!!
I felt absolutely lost before I finally decided to have the surgery and am now so glad I did. One year later I can do all the activities I wanted to do with my kids but never had the energy to do. I am pretty sure they wish I would slow down a bit now. I now have renewed self esteem having gone from a size 24 where it was hard to find things that fit and looked good to a size 12 where I am trying on things outside of my comfort zone and loving them. My family especially…
Dr. Anez is Freaking Awesome. He changed my Life. I am super excited about the journey that I started over 2 years ago. Dr. Anez and his staff (Jackie) were very helpful. #superhappy #BestDrEver #LosersBench
