Bariatric Surgery Support Group

At Healthy Steps Bariatric and Metabolic Center we believe strongly that support groups are important to a patient’s long-term health and success after bariatric surgery. As such, we recommend participation in regular support group meetings.

Sonoma County Weight Loss Surgery Support Group:

Sonoma County “RNY” Weight Loss Surgery Support Group is an independent group of patients who are either awaiting, considering, or have already undergone bariatric surgery. Throughout the year there are interesting guest speakers from on informative topics.  There is also a clothing exchange for patients transitioning down through sizes during their weight loss phase.

Here is the calendar and location for the FREE support group:

Time: 10:00am-12pm
