Everyone is invited to the Sonoma County Roux-en-Y (RNY) Weight Loss Surgery Support Group. Our meetings are open to all pre-ops, post-ops, and those trying to make that difficult decision whether to have gastric bypass surgery. Our focus is, but not limited to, the RNY Gastric Bypass procedure. We come together to support and learn from one another in an open forum on a new life style and good nutrition. Family and friends are also welcome. This group is unsponsored and is open to all sharing common interests.
Meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10AM to 12PM at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, 50 Mark West Springs Rd, Santa Rosa. There is no charge.
