Bariatric Services

Weight Loss Surgery Support

At Covenant Health, you'll find several resources at your disposal to help you through your weight loss journey. When you elect to undergo any weight loss procedure at our hospital, you will also receive support in the following areas:

Nutrition Counseling

Covenant's bariatric services program doesn't end with your weight loss surgery. We will give you the right tools to make sure your weight loss journey is a life-long success. You will have the opportunity to work with our bariatric dietician to design a nutritional plan that fits your new lifestyle.

Weight loss procedures alter your body's natural digestive process. Because of this, nutritional counseling is crucial in helping you learn the best eating techniques. You will learn basic nutritional skills to assist you in eating out or cooking at home.

Education and Support Groups

Covenant Health offers educational opportunities to our bariatric services patients both before and after surgery. If you're interested in learning more about any of the procedures we offer here, please attend one of our free bariatric seminars. Click here to find the next seminar that fits into your schedule. You can also call 1-866-4COVENANT and ask about bariatric services any time.

Support groups are also available to help new and former patients connect in a fun and safe environment to learn about what to expect before, during and after undergoing weight loss surgery.

Support groups are a free community event held monthly at Knipling Education Conference Center located on the 6th floor of the parking garage on the Southeast corner of 21st & Louisville. Support groups are available to anyone who has had bariatric surgery. Support groups are led by the Bariatric Nurse Specialist and the Bariatric Dietitian. Family members and potential patients are also welcome to attend. Registration is not necessary for support groups – please join us. Sugar-free drinks are served.
