These Bariatric support group meetings are intended to provide support on an emotional and educational level.  Information being provided is geared to provide the support that can be valuable throughout this process.  Patient’s will have the opportunity to communicate and engage with other patients regarding their previous experiences while obtaining feedback. Bariatric Fusion, a community partner who promotes health and wellness through vitamins/nutrition, will also co-host these meetings.   During the support groups meetings, NTSS staff will discuss any postoperative patient concerns regarding diet progression, exercise, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We want to encourage everyone to bring family, friends or anyone that plays a key role in your support system.  Please limit guest to 1 due to space limitations.

We highly recommend you attend at least one support group meeting prior to your surgery as well as throughout your recovery. The following dates are scheduled meeting times for our support groups.  Sign up will be in our office or feel free to email at rob.sanmiguel@ntx.ampluswebsites.com.  Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office and ask to speak to our Bariatric coordinator.
