|Weight Loss Surgery Support and Education
Our staff provides regular monthly support groups for those who have had weight loss surgery. Studies have shown that patients who attend support groups after weight loss surgery have a higher success rate. The purpose of the group is for ongoing support and education to create habits for success, address psychological and social issues, and incorporate healthy lifestyle changes. We regularly offer two post-operative support groups monthly.
Gastric Bypass/Gastric Band Post-op Support Group
This group is held monthly. This group is for anyone who has had gastric bypass or gastric band surgery as well as their support people. The group is led by a registered dietitian. The Gastric Bypass/Gastric Band Post-op Support Group meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in PeaceHealth Southwest's Health Education Center (unless otherwise noted).
