Support Group Meetings
Monthly support group meetings are available to all Sacramento Bariatric patients and are part of our program. There is never a fee for our patients to attend these group meetings.
Our support groups are led by licensed mental health providers and are educationally based. The meetings focus on such topics that are applicable to the lifestyle and behavioral changes that patients experience after bariatric surgery.

The importance of appropriate nutritional supplements cannot be overemphasized. As bariatric patients, you have unique nutritional needs. Both protein and vitamin supplements are required for health, maintenance of weight loss, and avoidance of nutritional deficiencies.
Sacramento Bariatric Medical Associates recommends only the highest quality supplements that are designed to meet the nutritional needs following bariatric surgery.
