We highly recommend and encourage patients to regularly attend one of our support groups both before and after surgery. Having the support of others who have gone through the same process can help patients achieve long-term weight-loss success. As our Adolescent Bariatric Program continues to grow, we plan to create an adolescent support group as well.
