Bariatric Support Group (Virtual)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are holding virtual support group meetings. Please call for details.

Weight loss surgery does not immediately resolve emotional or health issues associated with obesity. Many patients find that support groups help them adjust to the changes in their lifestyle following surgery, increasing their chance of maintaining their weight loss long term.

This support group is designed to provide support to patients who have undergone bariatric surgery (adjustable gastric banding, Roux-en-Y, gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy) and their support person or individuals considering bariatric surgery.

Topics discussed may include: emotions, plastic surgery options post-surgery, nutrition and exercise.
