Support Groups 

It’s not just about losing. It’s about living. 

No matter what you may have heard, weight loss surgery is not a one-and-done miracle cure. It truly can be a life-changing option with the right follow-up care. After your surgery, our first priority is providing you with education and encouragement to help you thrive with a new, healthier lifestyle, proper nutrition and active living.  

See the upcoming schedule below for our support group meetings, where our program leaders share practical advice and information relevant to patients in any stage of their surgical weight loss journey. These meetings are open to pre-ops, post-ops, or anyone thinking of having a bariatric procedure.
