Bariatric and Weight Loss Surgery Support Groups

UPMC's Bariatric Services is committed to your successful weight loss and management.

As part of this commitment, we offer various bariatric support groups. These include gastric bypass support groups and gastric band support groups each month at our locations throughout central and western Pennsylvania, and in New York.

Weight loss support groups can provide help for those going through a challenging time. We encourage all our patients to take advantage of this service.
