Coastal Carolina Bariatric & Surgical Center Support Group Meetings 2018, 6:00pm

The following support group dates will be held at Summerville Medical Center in Classroom 1 (back of the cafeteria). Support groups are for patients who have undergone Bariatric surgery (or may be considering it) and are looking for the support of other patients that can relate to their unique experiences. Support groups will include everything from protein parties and clothing exchanges, to having our nutritionist and exercise physiologist come in as a guest speaker. Please call our office at (843) 875-8994 for more information.

The support groups are open to all patients regardless of where you are in your journey. We encourage you to attend and to bring your significant other with you.
