Bariatric Support Group

What

Gastric bypass surgery is a tool to help with weight loss. Adolescents undergoing major surgery will need the support of their family to initiate and maintain lifestyle changes including healthy eating and regular exercise. Sustaining these changes can be difficult; meeting regularly with other patients and their families is beneficial for clarification and motivation of making healthier choices.
