This helpful support group is an opportunity for patients to learn more about what to expect throughout the journey of bariatric surgery. Participants are welcome to share their experiences, though it’s not required, and topics are determined by patient suggestions.
Postoperative patients are strongly encouraged to attend this group. We also welcome preoperative patients who are interested in learning about the lifestyle changes necessary to be successful with weight loss.
When: Third Wednesday of every month, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
