Weight and Wellness Center

Support Groups

Weight loss surgery has a powerful impact on many areas of your life.  Significant weight loss may affect your socialization, personal goals, occupational life, family dynamics and emotional well-being.

You can register for post-op support groups and obtain referrals from your behavioral health providers.

The comfort of your own home

The third Wednesday of each month from 6-7pm

This group is geared towards Tufts Medical Center Weight and Wellness Center pre- and post-operative patients. It’s a way to connect and share ideas from the privacy of your own home.

To sign up, or if you have questions, please contact Amy Stomieroski at astomieroski@tuftsmedicalcenter.org or Haijia Liu at hliu@tuftsmedicalcenter.org

On rare occasions, a patient may find that coming to the group session may be an unavoidable hardship due to job or distance. While we feel that the group experience is important to overall success in the program, in a few cases our behavioral staff will meet with you individually for counseling. This may apply to both pre-op preparation and to post-op support.
