Support

At St. Francis Health, we believe in supporting you through the weight loss journey before and after surgery. Our support groups provide a safe and caring place to reach out to others who are going through the same challenges as you. We celebrate victories and work through the hardest stages, together.

Weight Loss Surgery Support Group

Weight loss surgery is your turning point, and your life will never be the same as it was before the procedure. While the weight loss is a welcome result, you may find talking to someone along the way will help make your journey a smooth one. Our Weight Loss Surgery Support Group meets the second Saturday of every month at St. Francis Health. This group is a great way to meet people who can relate to what you are going through and help you navigate your way.

All patients who have had weight loss surgery or have been scheduled to have the surgery are welcome to attend the support group meetings. See the full support group schedule here.

Continued Care and Wellness Classes

Your new lifestyle is all about eating healthy and staying active. We offer many low-cost, supportive exercise classes for you to enjoy, such as aqua aerobics, yoga and more! Learn more about our Continued Care and Wellness Classes here.

Nutritional Support

Your support team, including your surgeon, nurse and staff, will provide nutritional information and diet guidelines to help you adjust to your new digestive process. Our non-surgical medical weight loss clinic also offers nutrition plans to help you map out the best diet going forward.
