Bariatric Patient Support Groups

Support Groups for Swedish Bariatric Surgery Patients

Once your surgery is complete, it is just the beginning of your recovery. Patients with the most successful, long-term results have also learned to adjust their mindset and emotions along with their eating habits.

Bariatric support groups – offered at no additional charge – are usually held the second Monday of each month at Swedish Medical Center, 2nd floor conference center, Pine B and C.

Patients who undergo bariatric surgery at Swedish are invited to participate in a free, ongoing patient support group that meets each month. Guest speakers present on a variety of relevant topics, including plastic surgery, nutrition, exercise and mental health.

Support groups are led by Kelly Elliot, RD, CNSD & team members from the Swedish Medical Center Bariatric Surgery Center.

The agenda includes:

  • Gastric Bypass Support Group 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Lap Band Support Group 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
  • with a guest speaker from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
