Support and Education

Our staff provides regular monthly support groups for those who have had weight loss surgery. Studies have shown that patients who attend support groups after weight loss surgery have a higher success rate. The purpose of the group is for ongoing support and education to create habits for success, address psychological and social issues, and incorporate healthy lifestyle changes. We regularly offer two post-operative support groups monthly.

Weight Loss Surgery Post-op Support Group

This Weight Loss Surgery Support group is held monthly and is for anyone who has had sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass or gastric band surgery as well as their support people. The group is led by a registered dietitian. The Weight Loss Support Group meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center's Health Education Center (unless otherwise noted).  Call 360-514-4265 for more information.
