Our Bariatric Support Groups
Undergoing weight-loss surgery is an important, life-changing decision. That’s why our hospitals offer a number of programs to help support you on your journey. The support groups are free and facilitated by licensed professionals experienced with weight loss and the weight loss journey. No matter what type of weight loss surgery you have had, our support group provides the opportunity to surround yourself with people who understand and support your goals.
Social support has proven to be one of the best predictors of success for a lifestyle change and is an important predictor of sustained weight loss. Therefore, all patients and potential patients, as well as spouses or other supportive people in their lives, are encouraged to attend the monthly support group meetings.
