Bariatric surgery support group

Broomall 7:00 PM ET To 8:00 PM ET
Nov 16 2020

Find someone to share the successes and problems of your experience, someone who is supportive and can help you get through the hard times.

Try to attend the support group regularly. Our support group is run by the surgeon of the Bariatric Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital and all patients are expected to actively participate and attend regularly. Patients who belong to a support group are most likely to succeed in their weight loss regimen and maintain their weight loss long-term.
