Surgery

Seminars

This group is for all patients preparing for bariatric surgery OR for patients who have already had surgery.  The goal of this group is to address patient concerns about their upcoming surgery or provide support to patients who have already had surgery.  The support group is designed to help patients identify and cope with different issues related to physical and dietary changes in their lives, possible fears, body image concerns, and emotional issues.  Specialists on our clinical team and patients in the community run this group.

It is a requirement of our program that all patients preparing for bariatric surgery attend two of these sessions.  Must be on time for session to count.

LOCATION OF GROUPS: All  groups are held in Cherkasky Auditorium (Enter Montefiore via the Gun Hill Road entrance; Go to the top of the stairs and turn right)
