Bariatric Support Groups
The bariatric support group at Lenox Hill Hospital offers excellent follow up support for those who have undergone weight loss surgery and is open to all who are considering surgery. Our bariatric support group is open to all patients who have undergone or are considering bariatric surgery.
Benefits of a Support Group
Bariatric seminars and support groups are a valuable tool in getting the best possible results from bariatric weight loss surgery. Group discussions often make the efforts required for positive results seem less daunting. Many individuals find encouragement in talking with other bariatric surgery patients who are facing similar challenges. In addition, listening to success stories from previous patients may provide encouragement for those just beginning their weight loss journey.
The variety of discussion topics are designed to provide support for patients at every stage of the process. Guest speakers include past patients, staff members, surgeons, and even occasionally national experts in the field. The diversity of speakers and topics makes every single session informative, and hopefully, fun.
