Support Group

It’s a journey, not a race.

Surgical weight loss can be life-changing — and that requires a lot of courage, care, and support before and after your visit to the hospital. At Dignity Health – St. Mary Medical Center, our team of weight loss experts is here to guide you with experienced, quality care every step of the way. One way we accomplish this is with weight loss support groups.

These small group sessions provide the opportunity to share your story with others who are experiencing many of the same feelings and concerns. It’s a place to celebrate successes, share challenges, and meet others that could act as a strong support system for each other. These can be very helpful for our patients and we recommend attending at least a couple sessions.

We also have online community forums available for discussion. Your surgical weight loss coordinator can provide more information.

The second Saturday of every month, our surgical weight loss program coordinator hosts an informational session and support group to help you better understand the surgical and non-surgical weight loss options, as well as the pre- and post-operative patient experience.
