Bariatric Surgery Support Group (Cottonwood)

Bariatric Surgery Support Group (Cottonwood)

The Bariatric Surgery Weight Loss Support Group meets on the first Thursday of each month from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Conference Room C, Verde Valley Medical Center. You may attend in-person or join virtually through a video conferencing option.  Contact us for more information about joining a support group virtually.

You can expect a 30-minute education session by one of our staff members, followed by a 60-minute interactive open discussion and question-and-answer session.

These support groups are open to all pre-op and post-op bariatric surgery patients, regardless of where they have had surgery.

We also encourage patients planning on surgery to attend at least one support group prior to surgery.

Note: In the event of inclement weather, please call 928-214-3737 to find out if the support group session has been canceled.
