Weight-Loss Support

Weight-Loss Surgery Support Group

Pre-surgery and post-surgery patients discuss concerns, successes, and learn strategies to keep off the weight. All are welcome, and no appointment is necessary.

Bariatric Facebook Group
After weight-loss surgery, it can be challenging to stay focused on your weight-loss goals. We encourage patients to join our WVU Bariatric Facebook group, where you can find online support before and after your surgery.

Medical Weight-Loss Program
Our Medical Weight-Loss Program addresses food, movement, and behavioral changes in a customized way that works for your individual lifestyle. Our goal is to create a plan that you can maintain for the rest of your life. As part of the program, you will be expected to self-monitor food intake, movement, sleep, and weight. With this information, we can see what is working for you and adjust what might not be giving you the best results. Call 304-598-4890 to register for a Medical Weight-Loss Program orientation session.
