Bariatric Support Group

The following classes and groups are available for weight loss surgery and bariatric treatment patients, family, and friends. **Until further notice, support groups will be held virtually due to social distancing**

Support group is optional, but highly encouraged. It is a great place to find connection, community, and support from other people going through a similar experience. Support group can help you learn what to expect after surgery, learn about healthy eating patterns and cope with lifelong behavior change. Our group is open to those considering surgery, post-op patients, as well as family and friends supporting the patient undergoing bariatric surgery. We are open to have patients who have had surgery elsewhere attend our group.

The format alternates between an open forum and a facilitated discussion with a credentialed health care provider. Topics include nutrition, psychology, exercise, plastic surgery, and more. There is always time for social interaction and questions.

Schedule - The MUSC Bariatric Surgery Program's support group is offered VIRTUALLY EVERY OTHER MONTH on the 3rd Tuesday at 3:30 PM
