Unlike most surgical weight loss programs you may see advertised, our bariatric center in Beaumont offers ongoing education and support groups locally to help you adjust to the physical and emotional changes that may occur after medical weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass, or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Our patients also receive a six-month membership to the WP Hebert Health & Wellness Center and training sessions with a personal trainer.
Research shows that ongoing assistance and post-operative guidance result in improved long-term health status and weight loss success. Our aftercare program provides the resources you need to design a plan to fit your lifestyle and weight loss needs.
Our registered dietitian and health professionals are right here in Beaumont to help you understand the dietary changes you will face as you prepare for weight loss surgery. Not only will we provide counseling before surgery, we will continue to work with you after surgery to make dietary adjustments as you progress toward your goals.
Education and Support
We'll always be here to help! You can call our office or come by anytime to talk. And through monthly group meetings, we offer all our patients the opportunity to share experiences with others who have had weight loss surgery. The encouragement and support you receive from your peers can play an integral role in helping you reach your goals and adjusting to the changes you will experience after surgery.
Weight Loss Support Groups
The CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Bariatric Center hosts free monthly support group meetings for patients who have undergone weight loss surgery.
The encouragement and support you receive from our staff and others who have undergone surgery will play an integral role in helping you reach your goals and help you adjust to the many changes you will experience.
