Bariatric Support Groups

Having weight-loss surgery is a big decision, but you are not in this alone. You will have a fleet of people to support you, answer your questions, encourage you, keep you accountable, help you get back on track if you have a setback and celebrate your successes. This includes our free bariatric support groups where you'll meet other people who have gone through similar weight-loss challenges.

Bariatric support group - less than one year

This group is helpful for patients considering bariatric surgery or those in the first year after surgery. It meets monthly on the fourth Monday of each month, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Gundersen Onalaska Clinic, Conference Room 3A.

Bariatric support group - one year plus

This group is helpful for patients more than a year after bariatric surgery. It meets monthly on the second Monday of each month, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Gundersen Onalaska Clinic, Conference Room 3A.

Bariatric support group - sleeve only (discontinued)

Due to low attendance, this group is no longer offered. Patients who have undergone a sleeve gastrectomy procedure are able to attend the less than and greater than one year support groups above.
