Weight Loss Surgery Seminars and Support Groups
There are seminars and support groups available for individuals who are considering, have had bariatric surgery, or who would like to learn more about it. Weight loss surgery can be an effective method of controlling "morbid" obesity (more than 100 pounds overweight), but often, there are strong psychological and emotional issues that also need to be addressed for people struggling with this level of obesity. For more information on any of these groups, please call 860-358-8354.
