Surgical weight loss is a journey that lasts far longer than it takes to heal from an operation. It is also a journey that you do not need to travel alone. United Regional Solutions feels strongly about that, which is why we maintain our Bariatric Surgery Support Groups for our clients.

The Support Group is for patients preparing for surgery and for those who are post-surgical. Discussions cover numerous topics, including the surgical procedure, how to prepare, what to expect, the changes you undergo, how others view you and how to ensure long-term, permanent success.

Facilitated by the bariatric program coordinator, the group meets quarterly from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Support Group meetings have proven to be a wonderful, cathartic experience for countless people.

Meetings are held at the Barnett Road Medical Building at 4327 Barnett Road in the Conference Room (use Entry B in the side of the building, Conference Room is next to CarePlus).
