Your surgery may only last a day, but your new lifestyle is for life.

That’s why we offer a range of support to help you through every stage of your weight loss journey, starting with our free informational seminars through to our pre-op and post-op support groups. We want to make sure you are totally prepared for surgery and that you stay safe, healthy and on track toward your own weight loss goals.

We talk a lot about family, and our support groups are an extension of our family — with you and your fellow patients at the center.

You will find a warm, welcoming and supportive environment where you can learn from others, share your experiences and help each other set and achieve goals. Because we know from experience that long-term successful patients can, and often do, inspire you.

Registration is required for most programs. Simply call (631) 686-7990 for more information or to sign up.

FREE Information Seminars

Led by Arif Ahmad, MD, Director of the Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery™, you will learn about obesity, treatment and surgical options, including risks and benefits. This is a great opportunity to get to know our program, members of our team and get your questions answered. Informational seminars are held several times a month.

Support Groups

Pre- and Post-Op Support Group
Our Pre- and Post-Op Support Group gives you and other patients who are considering surgery the opportunity to meet and ask questions with others who have already had surgery. You will likely find this welcoming and informative group to be the first of many bonds you make and share with others along your weight loss journey.

Meets three times each month.

Young Adult Support Group (ages 18-25)
If you are a patient between ages 18 and 25, you may have challenges that are unique to your age group. This is your chance to meet and share with other people your age who are at various stages of their weight loss journey.

Meets once a month.

Post-Op Group
You are embarking on a new life, and our Post-Op Group is ready to help you get started. No matter where you are on your weight loss journey, you will find a warm, welcoming and supportive group where you can share stories, challenges and triumphs.

Meets three times each month.
