Each month, Baylor Scott & White hosts support groups for patients to share experiences and assist each other in the preoperative and postoperative process of weight loss and maintenance. All adjustable gastric band, gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy patients are welcome to gain information and support. The support group meetings are usually facilitated by Laura Puckett, RD.
