Vanderbilt Weight Loss Center / Surgical Weight Loss Support Groups

Surgical Weight Loss Support Groups

Patients who are considering or have undergone bariatric surgery find it easier to make the necessary lifestyle adjustments when they meet and talk with other people going through the same experience.

We offer surgical weight loss support groups on different days of the week and at multiple locations, so you can find a support group that works for your schedule.
