Hybrid Weight Loss Surgery Support Group (Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center)

Did you know that patients who attend post-surgery weight loss groups lose up to 10% more weight than those who do not attend groups?

We offer monthly, specialized support groups for patients who have had bariatric surgery. We strive to provide valuable information and help you deal with unexpected challenges. Each support group offers additional educational and networking opportunities for participants. We also welcome patients who are preparing for surgery.

To assure that sessions offer the highest value to patients, sessions address a broad spectrum of issues that help meet the challenges of long-term lifestyle changes. We strive to recognize the needs of our patients at all levels. A licensed psychologist and registered dietitian, who are experienced with the challenges of obesity, lead the groups. Past topics have been relaxation tips/techniques, healthy cooking and meal planning, stress management, coping skills, body image changes, protein supplement taste testing and many more. We have also had guest speakers such as plastic surgeons, metabolic physicians and motivational speakers.


The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Team at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center is striving to find ways to keep you connected to the weight loss surgery community. We are pleased to offer the November and December support groups in person (at the Ambulatory Care Center, 200 South Orange Avenue,, Livingston) or virtually. Please join us as we explore the topic of Preparing for the Holidays After Weight Loss Surgery.  Registration is not required.
