Bariatric Support Group

UT Southwestern’s support group meets the first Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The group provides a safe place where patients who have had, or are thinking about having, surgery can get together and help each other cope with the emotional experiences and lifestyle changes that are part of an effective weight-loss program.

Weight management through bariatric surgery is a lifelong process. The goal is not to only lose weight but change your lifestyle to keep your weight off and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. There will be times when you will need support and guidance from those who have walked in your shoes. Come join us – no appointment required! Share your successes as well as your slumps and help us all to learn together. The support group is facilitated by a bariatric specialist, however, patients are empowered to lead and steer the meeting to the topics most important to them.

Please call 214-645-2900 for more information. We look forward to your participation!
