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:
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

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
