Bariatric Surgery Support Group

Before and after your surgery, you'll have the opportunity to attend bariatric patient support groups to better prepare you and your support person for what to expect before, during, and after surgery. The encouragement and guidance received through a support group can help keep motivation up. The Weight Management team at Independence Health System is committed to your success and has created programs to guide you through the entire weight loss journey.

Our support group sessions include:

  • Each session features a subject matter expert or a collaborative approach among others with similar experiences that will explain what you need to know and answer any questions or concerns.
  • An opportunity for you and your support person to meet post-surgical patients or current patients who are working toward their goals.
  • The opportunity to learn about lifestyle changes needed and how best to prepare and achieve sustainable results.
  • A chance to meet staff and other friendly, supportive bariatric patients who will help guide you throughout the process.

Information on the support groups will be shared with you by the office staff. Please contact your office if you have any questions.
