Our hospital-based program is determined to offer you ongoing support both before and after surgery. Our Support Groups discuss a broad range of topics to help prepare you for surgery, and also help you cope with the possible hardships that may follow such a life-changing decision as bariatric surgery. Weight loss can change both your outlook on life and the outlook of your friends and family.
We strongly encourage all of our patients to come to our Support Groups during any step of this journey. You are not alone, and we are here to help you in any way that we can. We celebrate each success, share tips and ideas, and share each others struggles and frustration with the lifestyle changes needed following weight loss surgery. It’s never easy and you need to surround yourself with those who share that common bond.
Please take a look at our support meeting calendar. Please note that only the support meetings held in Somerset, Kentucky, at Commonwealth Bariatric Center, are led by clinical professionals trained in bariatrics. The Commonwealth Bariatric Center, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, and LifePoint, Inc., are not responsible for any information shared at other listed patient led support meetings.
