Our support group meets monthly at the Parkview Founders Center and is an integral part of the weight loss program. Most bariatric surgeons report that ongoing post-surgical support helps produce the greatest level of success. Our group is led by a healthcare professional and speakers are invited to present information on pertinent topics. Patient interaction and discussion of successes and challenges is an integral part of the support group. Surgery candidates are encouraged to attend a support group meeting.
