Weight Loss Surgery Education Symposiums & Support Groups
Leading up to weight loss following gastric bypass surgery, patients must endure a rigorous recovery period and become accustomed to their new way of life. Weight loss surgery patients are expected to make changes to their eating and exercise habits and these life changes can be difficult. Weight loss surgery in Arcadia is a serious operation, so our bariatric surgery practice offers support groups to help our patients through the treatment.
California Bariatric and General Surgery Associates offers Symposiums on Bariatric Surgery the first Wednesday of each month. Weight loss surgery support groups for our patients are offered every first and third Monday of each month.
Surgical Treatment Symposium:
On the first Wednesday of each month, a weight loss surgery symposium is held at the Methodist Hospital, Lewis Hall, 300 West Huntington Drive Arcadia, California. The symposium starts at 7:00pm.
- Methodist Hospital – Lewis Hall 300 West Huntington Dr Arcadia, CA 91006
Bariatric Support Group was formed in order to help with some of the problems patients face as they lose weight. Some of the problems may be dietary, cosmetic and social. Please join us for an informative discussion on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month. The groups meet in Lewis Hall at Methodist Hospital from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
