Support Group

Support Group

Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital’s comprehensive bariatric program includes a monthly support group. Each month there is a different topic and/or speaker who will discuss topics such as diet, exercise, and healthy living behaviors. The group is held on the 2nd Monday of each month at Virtua Health & Wellness Center – Cherry Hill, located at 1 Brace Road in Cherry Hill, NJ. We will be in the Cardiology Conference Room.

This group is open to anyone who is considering surgery, who is in the process of preparing for surgery, or who has had surgery. Family, friends and support persons are also invited to attend! If you are considering weight loss surgery or are in the process of having surgery, please join us, we would love to have you! This is a great opportunity to meet others who have had weight loss surgery.

We now have day and evening support group sessions!

Support Group Benefits

  • Studies show that bariatric patients who regularly attend support group meetings, and are compliant in following up with their surgeons, have the greatest long term success.
  • Support group meetings, which are free, offer an excellent opportunity to discuss personal and professional issues with those that are going through a similar life change.
  • Weight loss surgery does not immediately resolve emotional issues. Support group can help.
  • Foster camaraderie through a common bond by sharing personal experiences with others.

Now offering, a special monthly session focusing on Nutrition After Bariatric Surgery, in addition to our ongoing support group. Learn more about this program here.
