Resources and Support

Greenwich Hospital's commitment to comprehensive, compassionate care for weight loss patients reaches beyond the examination room. We provide access to a variety of support services and resources for potential, pre- and post-operative bariatric surgery patients.

The widespread use of support groups has provided weight loss surgery patients an excellent opportunity to discuss their various personal and professional issues. Most learn, for example, that weight loss surgery will not immediately resolve existing emotional issues or heal the years of damage that obesity might have inflicted on their emotional well-being. Ongoing post-surgical support helps product the greatest level of success for their patients.

Monthly support groups for pre-op and post-op bariatric surgery patients are offered online. Support groups are available for those considering bariatric surgery, those awaiting surgery and those who have had surgery, regardless of where surgery is performed and regardless of how long ago it occurred. Friends and family are welcome to participate as well. For more information, contact our bariatric surgery coordinator at 203-863-3646 or [email protected]

Comprehensive Follow-Up Care

Our surgeons closely monitor patients after all weight-loss procedures. Routine follow-up visits are scheduled at two weeks, two months, six months and 12 months following surgery. After one year, visits are annual. During these exams, care providers review personalized health, diet, exercise, medication and vitamin/mineral requirements. Annual visits help us provide you with early intervention for any postoperative problems and to track your progress over time. 

Multidisciplinary Team 

Our experienced multidisciplinary weight-loss team includes surgeons, Physician Assistants (PA), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN), dietitians, social workers and exercise physiologists who work with you and support you throughout your journey to bariatric surgery and after surgery.
