Weight Loss Support Groups


The New England Weight Management Institute (NEWMI) support groups meet monthly and are designed for pre-operative and post-operative patients who have had or are going to have gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or adjustable gastric banding surgery.
Some of the support group sessions include:
  • Post-operative patients who discuss experiences and concerns
  • Behavioral health specialists who focus on behavioral approaches to weight control
  • Exercise physiologists who discuss the importance of exercise and demonstrate exercise tactics
  • Protein taste testing: sample some of the high protein supplements needed for post-operative recovery
  • Plastic surgeon who discusses procedures available following significant weight loss 
  • Exploration of plastic surgery options for patients who have achieved significant weight loss and need assistance in managing excess skin
