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 Laura Paradis at lparadis@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.
