Education and Events
No one bariatric procedure is right for all patients. We are committed to ensuring that our patients receive thorough and clear explanations of each of the procedural options. We want to help you make an educated decision on which operation has the best possibility of meeting your goals.
Attend a free weight loss seminar at the Surgical Weight Loss Program at NWH to learn more.
Our team of nutritionists, psychologists, and exercise and fitness experts take a respectful and nurturing approach to guiding your path to weight loss and wellness, and to preparing the mind and body for the best outcome.
Individual sessions are available to provide you with techniques to identify the causes of stress and then to reduce stress at its source. These include:
- techniques on how to cope with worry
- focus on positive strengths
- recognize problem ownership
- emphasize empowerment
- how to become more assertive
Each session begins with a discussion of the stressors that you may experience in your life that contribute to your urge to eat. In this discussion, we will review physiological stress reactions, the “Flight or Fight” response, and the effects of stress on the body. We will also focus upon specific factors that can cause stress and trigger emotional eating as a defense mechanism. Contact email@example.com or call 914.666.1914 for more information.
Support groups help you to maintain your goals long after the surgery.
