Weight Loss Surgery Support Groups

Sentara recognizes that support is a key element of weight loss surgery. Whether you are a prospective weight loss surgery candidate, recently had a procedure or had it several years ago, our support groups are an important piece of a successful recovery.  Weight loss surgery support groups are designed to help patients with some of the more common situations they may encounter following surgery. They are also a great opportunity for patients to meet, share their personal weight loss stories and find a common connection with others who have been through this unique and life-changing procedure.

Joining a Support Group for Weight Loss Surgery

Pre-surgery patients are required to register to attend a Support Group. Please call 1-800-SENTARA. 

For post-surgery patients, registration is not required.
