El Camino Hospital holds regular, free support groups where you can gain insight, information and encouragement from your peers. We also provide continuing education on nutrition, lifestyle, psychological issues, and long-term follow-up using curriculum by Bariatric Support Centers International. In addition, many of our bariatric surgeons hold their own patient support groups.
Our doctors provide individualized follow-up care that can include a personalized exercise program, nutrition education and, where appropriate, physical therapy, counseling and/or psychological services.
We have special seminars with guest speakers to talk about related issues i.e.: plastic surgeons – body recontouring after weight loss, psychologists – relationship changes, bariatric surgeons – getting back on track.
