Bariatric surgery is weight-loss surgery that is used to treat morbid obesity.  The following procedures are usually performed laparoscopically by our bariatric surgeons: Adjustable Gastric Banding, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy.  The New Life Support Group is geared towards patients who have already had surgery (at The Nebraska Medical Center or elsewhere), however anyone is welcome to attend. The support group topics vary each month and include subjects such as mindful eating, improving your eating habits, exercise, self-esteem, dealing with stress, etc.
