Support Groups

The  use of support groups provides weight loss surgery patients an excellent opportunity to discuss various personal and professional challenges.

We offer monthly support groups that meet at Fort Sanders Regional in Knoxville and Cumberland Medical Center in Crossville. Ongoing support post-surgery is one of the keys to long term success for our patients.

Stadium steps are no problem for Rex since losing 100 lbs with bariatric surgery!

*Unless noted the Knoxville Support Groups meet at Fort Sanders Regional in Classroom 1 on the lobby level.
