Support Groups

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center offers monthly bariatric surgery support groups on the second and third Thursday of each month, from 5 to 6 p.m., in the Francis X. Knott conference center. A support group also is held on the fourth Monday of each month, from 6 to 7 p.m., at the Medical Pavilion at Howard County in Columbia.

Support groups are open to pre- and post-operative patients and often feature speakers presenting on topics including exercise, nutrition, plastic surgery and more. Patients often bring clothes to the meeting for a clothing swap, protein supplements to try and lots of stories and good information. Pre-operative patients can gain insight on life after surgery. You're welcome to attend any or all meetings each month. Please try to bring a support person with you.

Registration is not required for support groups. Parking is free at both locations.
