Support Groups

Once a month, anywhere from 50 to 80 post-operative bariatric surgery patients gather in the Conference Center at Munson Medical Center for education and support. Additional participants in outlying communities around northern Michigan join the discussion from REMEC Telehealth Network rooms at health facilities in Alpena, Beaver Island, Cadillac, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Frankfort, Gaylord, Grayling, Kalkaska, and Manistee. Our speakers give great practical advice on everything from exercise, to how to keep your marriage healthy, to what to wear as your body changes.

Anytime Support

Whether you have recently had bariatric surgery, or are just thinking about it, you can get a lot of great information and tips at the monthly Grand Traverse Surgery Support Group meetings.  Drop by for any of these meetings – no registration is needed and everyone is welcome.

For more information, contact Grand Traverse Surgery at (231) 346-4014.

Mentor Program

Patients who are contemplating or committed to bariatric surgery can be paired with a mentor who has experienced the procedure and the subsequent lifestyle changes. The mentor provides useful first-hand knowledge, as well as an empathetic ear. Many patients find it helpful to have someone to talk to.
