Support Groups

Any candidate for weight loss surgery should realize that losing weight requires discipline. Our Post-bariatric surgery support groups are made up of real patients at every stage in the weight loss process, from those who have successfully lost the excess weight to those just beginning to do so. These groups are an invaluable source of supportive understanding for people facing the challenges of weight loss. Post-bariatric surgery patients at our Dallas-Fort Worth-area practice consistently report that the strength they draw from these groups is essential to their success.

Counselor/Therapist

It takes courage to undergo bariatric surgery, and almost everyone faces emotional challenges on the road to weight loss. Our trained, licensed counselors and therapists work with patients on an individual basis to help them confront depression, insecurities, and other negative emotions that may manifest when recovering from minimally invasive surgeryor during weight loss. By monitoring these conditions closely and addressing the root causes, our counseling staff helps Post-bariatric surgery patients stay committed to weight loss.

Exercise Physiologist

Exercise is extremely important, so all of our patients have access to an exercise physiologist to develop, adjust, and follow a customized exercise plan that will speed weight loss and improve the patient’s overall health. Our physiologists are accustomed to working with Post-bariatric surgery patients who are suffering from obesity-related co-morbidities such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. The exercise regimen is central to helping our patients look and feel their healthiest.
