One of our board-certified surgeons and members of our support team will carefully explain the procedures we offer, including what to expect at each weight loss interval. You’ll also have the chance to ask any questions to help you make an informed decision. We encourage you to bring your support person with you.

Weight Loss Surgery Support Groups

The transition after surgery can be challenging as you get used to a whole new way of life. Whether you’ve already had your procedure, or are preparing for surgery, be sure to join one of our regular support groups to help stay on track.

Sessions are led by our registered dietitian, as well as guest speakers in fitness, mental health and more. We’ll talk about the adjustments for you and your loved ones, and provide the tools you need to overcome obstacles. It’s also a great chance to connect with people who’ve experienced similar struggles and successes. We encourage your support person to attend as well.

In addition to these monthly sessions, we have Getting Started Support Group meetings every Friday morning at 9 a.m. for patients that are up to three months post-surgery.
