Many patients contemplating weight loss surgery, or those who have recently had surgery, wish they had someone to speak to regarding their experience, including dietary changes/needs, exercise, head hunger and other lifestyle changes.
The Weight and Wellness Center has established a Mentoring Program to provide this support through patients who have undergone bariatric surgery at Tufts Medical Center and have agreed to volunteer as a mentor.
These former patients have not been coached or trained by Tufts Medical Center; their qualification for participating in the Weight and Wellness Mentorship Program is only that they have undergone bariatric surgery and are successful with maintaining their weight loss and overall health.
If you are participating in our program and wish to speak with a mentor, please ask a member of the clinical team for a mentor referral. Meet our mentors and read their testimonials.
