Support Programs

At Montefiore's Weight Reduction Surgery Program, we prepare all of our patients for life before and after your procedure with a comprehensive education and support program. We currently offer two support groups depending on where you are in the process of your procedure.

Bariatic Surgery Support Group

The Bariatric Surgery Support Group is open to all our patients preparing for bariatric surgery as well as 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, run jointly by specialists on our clinical team and patients in the community, is designed to help patients identify and cope with different issues related to physical and diet changes in their lives, possible fears, body image concerns, and emotional issues. All patients preparing for weight loss surgery must attend two of these sessions. In order for the session to count, please be on time. Children are not allowed during the session.

Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location: Moses Division, 111 East 210th Street, Bronx, NY 10467 (enter on Gun Hill Road), Cherkasky Auditorium

Post Operative Bariatric Surgery Support Group

The Post Operative Bariatric Surgery Support Group is for patients who have already had bariatric surgery. This support group is designed to address both immediate and long-term lifestyle change issues needed to achieve weight loss success. The group is designed to help patients identify and cope with different issues related to physical and diet changes in their lives, possible fears of regaining weight, body image concerns and emotional issues.

Time: 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Location: Greene Medical Arts Pavilion, 3400 Bainbridge Avenue, Bronx, NY 10467, 4th floor waiting area

GRUPOS DE AUTOAYUDA PARA CIRUGÍA BARIÁTRICA

Este grupo está organizado para todos los pacientes que se preparan para la cirugía bariátrica O para pacientes que ya han sido operados. El objetivo de este grupo es atender las inquietudes de los pacientes relacionadas con la próxima cirugía o brindar apoyo a los pacientes que ya se han operado. El grupo de ayuda está diseñado para apoyar a los pacientes en la identificación y confrontación de los diferentes aspectos relacionados con los cambios físicos y de alimentación en sus vidas, posibles temores, problemas relacionados con la imagen corporal y aspectos emocionales. Los especialistas de nuestro equipo clínico y pacientes de la comunidad hacen que el grupo funcione.

Uno de los requisitos de nuestro programa es que todos los pacientes que se preparan para una cirugía bariátrica asistan a dos de estas sesiones. Deben llegar a la sesión a la hora programada para que se les registre la asistencia.
