  • At BMIWLSS, we invite our pre and post-op patients to come together to talk, share experiences, and provide emotional support for one another.
  • Come surround yourself with people who understand and support your goals, which directly increases your chances of long-term success.
  • Each month will feature a new topic or guest speaker with occasional door prizes.
  • Support Group discussions are not only therapeutic and educational, but lively and fun as well!
  • Supportive family members and friends are also encouraged to attend.
  • Space is extremely limited, so please register on the Patient Portal.  Events will disappear from the Portal once all spots have been reserved.
