Weight Loss Surgery Support Group


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:

    Attend a Free
    Seminar on
    Weight Loss
  • 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

Members of our postop weight loss support group can build a community of friends among people who really understand what they’re going through. Surrounded by people who support their goals, our members:

  • Consider issues about obesity as a disease
  • Discuss personal or professional issues that arise after bariatric surgery
  • Receive the latest weight loss information

After their weight loss surgery, our patients are learning a new way of life and how to make sense of the role that food plays in their lives. Our support group focuses on:

  • Developing new eating and drinking behaviors
  • Learning a new relationship with food
  • Managing nutritional and physical health, as well as emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual well-being
