Support Groups

  • Long-term success after surgery depends on your ability to meet many challenges.

    Sometimes it's helpful to meet with others who have undergone weight loss surgery -- to share experiences and to realize you are not alone in your circumstance.

    Patients who have had bariatric surgery at Einstein are welcome to attend support group meetings.
