Support Group

Bariatric surgery is available at Meritus Medical Center for anyone over the age of 18 who is suffering from obesity, and our program includes a bariatric support group. Meetings are open to those who have had bariatric weight loss surgery and those who are just interested (including support persons) in more information. If you'd like to learn more about this surgery, consider attending a meeting.

Meetings are lead by our Registered Dietitian and feature topics such as nutrition, healthy behaviors, exercise, skin removal surgery and may include a special guest speaker. In addition, one of the program's bariatric surgeons will periodically attend meetings to answer questions and discuss surgery.

Support group meets every third Tuesday each month from 6-7 p.m. online (until further notice). To attend the online support group meeting you must register with our office and be added to our group list. You will then receive an invite by email that will allow you to attend by video or by phone if you do not have video capability.

To be added to our support group list for an invite to attend, please call our office at 301-714-4044.
