Support Groups for Bariatric Surgery

TBS support groups for Bariatric Surgery provide our patients with an excellent opportunity to discuss their various personal and professional issues.  Most learn, for example, that weight loss surgery will not immediately resolve existing emotional issues or heal the years of damage that morbid obesity might have inflicted on their emotional well-being.

TBS offers both online and on-site support groups at our San Antonio and Corpus Christi offices to assist you with short-term and long-term questions and needs, including the most effective exercise and diet programs after bariatric surgery.

Ongoing post-surgical support helps produce the greatest level of success for our patients, and provides encouragement to maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle for good.
