We are pleased to offer bariatric support groups at USMD Hospital at Arlington. Bariatric pre- and post-operation patients, spouses, and families are all welcome to attend.

These support groups include educational topics and speakers dedicated to helping individuals understand what to expect and how to be a successful bariatric patient. Spouses and family members are encouraged to attend, as USMD Hospital at Arlington believes weight loss is a family affair and family support is important for optimal treatment outcomes.
