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.

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.
