The Bariatric Surgery Program at Reliant Medical Group offers several options for follow up and support after bariatric surgery.

Like Nutrition, Behavioral Health remains available to you after bariatric surgery. Behavioral Health offers post-surgical support groups, with separate groups for patients who have had surgery within the past year and patients who had surgery more than a year ago.  Post-surgical support groups can help you stay consistent with a healthy lifestyle and provide support and advice when challenges arise.

Why is support after surgery so important? Bariatric surgery is a weight loss tool but it is important to continue to work on behavioral, nutrition and exercise goals to achieve and maintain weight loss and stay healthy. Research shows that people who have had consistent support and follow up after bariatric surgery are the most successful long term.
