Bariatric Patient Support Groups in Nebraska

The Bariatric patient support groups offer education, fellowship and support for all patients/family that have had weight loss surgery, or who are considering and/or planning surgery in the future.

All patients from any bariatric surgeon/program are welcome to attend any of the groups. Research has found that people who regularly attend a support group have better outcomes.
