We know that patients participating in weight loss surgery benefit from support received from many sources - including family, friends, physicians and the entire medical team. Also important is the support that patients get from others, who like themselves, have actually experienced weight loss surgery.
Studies have shown that bariatric patients who regularly attend support group meetings and follow up with their surgeon have the greatest long-term success. We offer a support group on the first Tuesday of each month with a variety of topics to help you on your weight loss journey. Topics include: snacking, portion control, holiday success, exercise, vitamins & supplements, reconstructive surgery and others. Locations are in Bismarck, Crosby, Dickinson, Garrison, Minot and Williston.
