We Have Support for You at Every Stage of the Bariatric Process
Research shows that patients who regularly attend support groups have a greater level of success with weight loss. We have an online support group for our patients on Facebook and we also have an in-person support group meeting once a month. A registered nurse or health care specialist monitors our support groups. Our support groups are for those at any stage of the bariatric process.
Our in-person support group meetings happen once a month and all patients are invited to attend. We highly encourage active participation and input. We sometimes have speakers and special events or small group discussions.
Check KC Bariatric Facebook and Instagram for upcoming dates and topics for our in-person meetings. We usually film our support group meetings so those that can’t attend can still access the information. The videos are posted to our Facebook page. All support group meetings take place in the Conference Room at Prairie Star Health, Building A. No registration is required.
Free Clothing Exchange
As you transition through several sizes, you may want to donate clothing bigger than you now need. You can “shop” for items that fit you before support group meetings or anytime during our business hours. Please call 913-676-8491 or 913-676-8492 before visiting and we can open the closet for you. Follow the button below to find out more about what items we accept.
Checkout Our Bariatric Educational Videos
We create series of bariatric educational videos for patients that are available on our Youtube and Facebook. These videos include everything from “Surgeon Question & Answer,” “Frequently Asked Bariatric Questions,” “Dietitian Talk,” and “Workout Videos.”
