Support Group

Patient support groups help those considering surgery to get first-hand perspectives from the patients who have already undergone Bariatric surgery. Participation after surgery in support groups help patients maintain excellent weight loss, with access to group’s experience and of course, make new friends.

We facilitate one of the largest Bariatric Patient Support Group in India at Nobesity which is also the most vibrant group!

Not only our Support Group Program is a free monthly meeting open to all of our patients before and after surgery; but also open for patients operated by other surgeons!

Discussions of different topics each month are related to diet and lifestyle adjustments before and after weight loss surgery, remaining fit forever etc. Please feel free to bring other interested persons and your family member with you to support group.

Our Support Groups are held on Last Sunday of every month at our Nobesity Center at Columbia Hospital, Ahmedabad.

You may please register yourselves with us in advance for attending these meetings free of charge.
