Support Groups

Every patient must attend at least one support group meeting before having Bariatric Surgery. We recommend that you get involved in a support group as soon as possible since most only meet once per month. We encourage patients to attend the support group meetings held at Tennova Turkey Creek Medical Center prior to surgery, because these are held by medical staff, and can answer more of your medical questions. Have your support group sheet signed at the meeting and return it to the office.

We have a large Internet chat room through Yahoo Groups. The web address is: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/KnoxvilleWLS/. This does NOT count as attending a support group, unless specifically cleared by your surgeon at the time of your consult in our office.
