Bariatric Support Group
The ProMedica Toledo Hospital Metabolic and Bariatric Center Support Group is committed to providing all pre-operative and post-operative patients with the knowledge they need to be successful in their personal bariatric journeys. The meetings are a wonderful opportunity for patients to make new friends who share similar experiences and feelings.
Support group meetings provide patients with peer support. It is reassuring to hear others’ viewpoints on common concerns and get additional information from group leaders and guest speakers. The meetings also allow you to learn about surgery firsthand from others who have had weight loss surgery.
Additionally, support group meetings are great for problem solving. Research has shown that patients who attend support groups regularly are more successful with their weight loss. Family and friends are always welcome to attend.
Upcoming Support Group Meetings
Our support group meetings are held at the ProMedica Health Center (Woodley) located at 3909 Woodley Road, Suite 200, in Toledo. Woodley Road is just off West Sylvania Avenue, not far from Franklin Park Mall.
