Commonwealth Bariatric Center recognizes the importance of ongoing support for our weight loss surgery patients. It can be challenging adopting the lifestyle changes needed for lifelong success and we are here to help. These lifestyle changes often begin before surgery and we encourage patients to participate in support meetings as soon as they have made the commitment to have weight loss surgery.
We offer regularly scheduled monthly support meetings in Somerset and London, and also offer our own internet support Web site which is managed by our staff. Support meetings are designed in a manner that helps patients feel safe in a warm, friendly environment among like individuals. We encourage the sharing of all weight loss surgery experiences, recipe sharing, success tips, and will provide ongoing educational topics related to behavior, exercise and nutrition. The surgeon and bariatric nurse facilitate the support meetings and, as weight loss surgery patients themselves, offer a very unique perspective.
