We’re devoted to your success

Your success after surgery weighs heavily on you. Following guidelines for diet, exercise and lifestyle are important and can be challenging at times. We’re here to support you as you navigate the necessary changes to ensure your long-term success.

Post-Operative Support Group

Patients that regularly attend support groups after surgery have been shown to be more successful than those that don’t. We welcome all patients that have previously had weight loss surgery regardless of where you had your original surgery. Our free meetings are a great way to learn, meet and share information with other patients. Our support groups cover nutritional, social, and medical issues related to weight loss surgery.
