The NJ Bariatric Institute is committed to providing you as much opportunity as possible. We know that patients who have weight loss surgery like to meet in support group meetings and/or chat rooms. Clinical studies show that bariatric patients who attend support group meetings fare better than those who don’t. We are happy to provide multiple opportunities regionally for our patients to congregate, discuss their issues and help each other. We are also proud to offer patients who are new to our organization, who may be investigating wieght loss surgery the opportunity to attend meetings. We believe that the shared experience of interacting with real people from the community who have experienced the same burdens is helpful. The groups are non-judgmental and open. The moderators donate their time and expertise. Our calendar of support group meetings, dates, times and locations can be viewed below.
