We encourage everyone to be active and aggressive in the learning process of surgery.
We provide bariatric support group meetings each month for your convenience. The meetings take place at Medical City Fort Worth Hospital and Baylor Scott & White All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth.
The bariatric support group meetings provide emotional support and educational information that is valuable during this process. You will be given the facts about Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedures as well as Lap-Band approaches to weight loss surgery. You will also have the opportunity to communicate with other patients regarding their personal experiences. The support group staff will address any post operative patient concerns regarding diet progression, relationships, exercise, and cooking. We encourage you to bring family and friends as they will be a big part of your support system.
We highly recommend you attend at least one support group meeting prior to surgery as well as one seminar. The following dates are scheduled meeting times for support groups.
