Bariatric Surgery Support Groups
Our monthly support groups provide a secure, warm setting for patients undergoing the process of lifetime diet and lifestyle changes that can improve surgery outcomes are necessary to achieve enduring weight loss.

Our Bariatric Support Groups will give you a great opportunity to discuss personal or professional issues that arise from surgery or from a history of obesity. In addition, they allow you to surround yourself with people who understand and support your goals, which directly increase your chances of long-term success.
Each group meeting is facilitated by our bariatric dietitian and program coordinator and/or one of our bariatric surgeons, medical director, nurse practitioners, or bariatric nurses.
