Patient Support Group

An important part of your success in any weight-loss program is the support you receive throughout your journey. The Denver Health Bariatric Surgery Center offers two online support groups: pre-op and post-op.

The Denver Health bariatric support groups are held on the third Wednesday of every month. Please join us for our online support groups:

  • Each month you will receive an email, with a new link to that month's support group
  • Confirm you received the email before the start of the support group (make sure you check your junk mail)
  • Sessions are hosted by one of our registered dietitians
  • Each support group starts with a hot topic related to nutrition or a guest speaker
  • You will have time to ask questions and interact with other patients who are also on the Webex Family and friends are encouraged to attend
