    Support Groups

     

    Talking to others who are experiencing what patients are going through can often help. It’s a key aspect of any treatment plan, and why St. Mary Medical Center offers a number of seminars and support groups.

    Surgical Weight Loss

    We offer monthly Support Sessions the second Saturday of every month at St. Mary Medical Center for pre-op and post-op weight loss surgery patients. The groups are led by members of the bariatric services team to provide additional support for patients undergoing lifestyle changes before and after bariatric surgery.

    We also offer a private one-on-one consultation to hear directly from the bariatric physicians and learn how surgical weight loss can help change your life.

    Please call 562.491.7995 to register.
