For more information about our support group, call us at 410-328-8940.

One of our registered dietitians hosts our free support group each month. Specifically designed for our postoperative patients, our group is a safe place to share feelings, find motivation and support and start building a new life.

Studies show that support groups like ours can increase the chances of short-term and long-term success for our patients after bariatric surgery. We welcome significant others to attend with our patients, as part of their support system.

Each support group meeting includes:

  • A presentation by our registered dietitian
  • Discussion among members about that month’s topic and nutrition
  • An “Ask the Doctor” segment and speakers, when other weight loss health professionals attend (not every meeting)
  • Time for questions from patients at the beginning of their weight loss surgery journey
  • Social interaction
