Patient Support

Thank you for choosing St. Vincent Medical Center's weight-loss surgery. You and your family have made this journey together and now it’s time for you to take advantage of the educational resources and support groups.

If you review St. Vincent’s Weight Loss Success stories, you’ll know that bariatric weight-loss program is greatly enhanced by our counseling in the nutrition, exercise and psychosocial aspects of obesity.

Your bariatric surgeon and staff can help you with medical questions while these articles and your support group can help you with your emotional needs and diet/fitness/pain questions.
