Weight Loss Surgery Support Group
Bariatric surgery is a specialized procedure that can take a physical and emotional toll on patients. We encourage all of our bariatric surgery patients to join a weight loss surgery support group so you can meet and interact with people who are experiencing the same challenges. Those who attend support group meetings range from preoperative to many years postoperative. The wealth of insight and help you will receive at support groups is invaluable.
The Kelsey-Seybold bariatric team recommends a weight loss surgery support group that meets at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center. This monthly group provides education and peer support and is designed to help you adjust to and maintain healthy lifestyle changes to ensure long-term success. All meetings are free of charge.
Virtual support groups meet 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. the first Wednesday of every month.
NOTE: Support groups will be held virtually until further notice to ensure the safety of all participants.
