Surgical Weight Loss Support Groups

We realize that an important part of the surgical weight loss journey is the support you receive along the way. At OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, we encourage our patients, both before and after surgery, to join support groups and connect with others on the same journey. We offer a wide range of support groups throughout our service area.
