Did you know that patients who attend post-surgery weight loss groups lose up to 10% more weight than those who do not attend groups?

At RWJBarnabas Health, we offer monthly specialized support groups for patients who have had bariatric surgery. We strive to provide valuable information and help you deal with unexpected challenges. Each support group offers additional educational and networking opportunities for participants. We also welcome patients who are preparing for surgery.

To assure that sessions offer the highest value to patients, sessions address a broad spectrum of issues that help meet the challenges of long-term lifestyle changes. We strive to recognize the needs of our patients at all levels. The groups are led by professionals, a licensed psychologist and dietitian, who are especially experienced with the challenges of obesity. Past topics have included: relaxation tips/techniques, healthy cooking and meal planning, stress management, coping skills, body image changes, protein supplement taste testing and many more. We’ve also had guest speakers such as plastic surgeons, metabolic physicians and motivational speakers.

Please register online or for more information, please call Jen Stein at (973) 322-9845.
