group meetings

Research has shown that the amount of weight lost after bariatric surgery is correlated with the number of support group meetings attended, with the patients who regularly attend meetings having a better outcome over time than those who do not attend meetings.

The Chrysalis Clinic offers a monthly support group for both pre- and post-operative bariatric patients. Pre- and post-operative patients are able to share information and experiences, as well as provide each other with support and encouragement, at all stages of the pre- and post-operative process. This well-attended support group, which is facilitated and is free of charge, provides a safe environment with a friendly, informal atmosphere, in which all group members are given the opportunity to share both their inspirational stories as well as their queries and concerns.
