The Benefits of Support Groups for Bariatric Surgery Patients

South Texas Weight Loss Surgery Support Groups  

If you or a loved one are planning to undergo bariatric surgery, you may consider joining a support group to help you along your journey. The significant lifestyle changes associated with weight loss surgery—whether it’s LAP-BAND, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, vBloc procedure, or any other bariatric procedure—can pose challenges for patients and those around them. Having a group of people who understand what you are going through is critical to your successful journey.

At South Texas Surgeons in San Antonio, we offer weight loss support groups every third Thursday of the month at our office on 414 Navarro, Suite 810, San Antonio, Texas 78205. Our weight loss support groups are open to current bariatric surgery patients, those who are interested in having weight loss surgery, established STX patients, and family members, friends, and partners of potential or current STX patients.

Come join us and have your questions answered, hear others’ stories and experiences with weight loss surgery, and find the support and encouragement you need to help you obtain your weight loss goals. Nix valet parking is available free of charge to our support group attendees.

STX Surgeons in San Antonio is home to two of the nation’s leading bariatric surgeons—Dr. Keith Wright and Dr. Gerardo Carcamo. For more information about our weight loss support groups, call 210.220.1726.
