Support Group

Bariatric surgery is available at Meritus Medical Center for men and women who are suffering from obesity, and our program includes a bariatric support group. Meetings are open to people who have had bariatric weight loss surgery, as well as those who are just interested in it. If you'd like to learn more about this surgery, consider attending a meeting.

Each meeting will feature a speaker to discuss such topics as nutrition, dietary behavior, anesthesia, sleep disorders, and cosmetic surgery. A patient who has already had surgery—either laparoscopic banding or the Roux-en-Y procedure—will be available to answer questions after the speaker's presentation. In addition, one of the program's bariatric surgeons will periodically attend meetings to discuss the surgery in general.

Meetings will be held the third Tuesday of each month starting at 6:00pm at Robinwood Professional Center, suite 122. For more information call the Weight Loss Center at Robinwood at 301-714-4044.
