Support groups are designed to provide encouragement and education for patients both before and after bariatric surgery. These support groups are integral to helping you succeed and maintain your weight loss goals. Each meeting includes an opportunity for individual sharing, a discussion topic and an opportunity to ask questions.

Please join us for one of our informational seminars to learn about weight loss options, including discussions about surgery and lifestyle changes to help you maintain a healthy weight. Seminars are free and open to the public. These seminars provide prospective patients with information about weight loss risks and benefits, as well as the opportunity to talk to a patient panel that includes current participants in the program and those that have successfully completed the program. If you are out of the area, a video recording of the event will be available.
