As part of Weight Loss Surgical Centers of Louisiana’s ongoing commitment to long-term health, we ask our patients and encourage our potential patients to attend support groups. These structured group meetings offer the opportunity to interact with other individuals who have had, or who are considering weight loss surgery.
Conducted by a facilitator, each meeting focuses on topics pertinent to individuals who have undergone surgical treatment for morbid obesity. There are a variety of topics such as nutrition, diet, exercise, coping in social situations that involve food, follow-up health issues and more.
