Post-Surgical Support Groups

At the Harper Bariatric Medicine Institute, we know that most weight loss solutions are ineffective if they do not support the patient psychologically and with significant behavioral modification. We provide the support you need I these areas.

Successful weight loss after bariatric surgery is easier and faster when patients can access personal help through local support groups. Our support groups create a forum for continued education and support for those who have undergone bariatric surgery or may be considering surgery.

Goals of the support groups are weight management and a healthier lifestyle through education, support and networking. Each session is facilitated by either a nutritionist, exercise physiotherapist, clinical coordinator, nurse or physician and features various educational topics of interest to our patients, such as nutrition, exercise and behavior modification skills.

Your program coordinator can tell you more about our support programs including dates, times and locations…
