support groupWeight loss surgery is an enormous and life-changing undertaking. Individuals who opt to undergo Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery have a personal responsibility to maintain healthy habits for the rest of their lives.

Our Cedar Park surgeons, Dr. Alan Abando and Dr. Nicole Basa, help shoulder this responsibility with our patients by providing a local and comprehensive weight loss surgery support program. Bariatric support groups, counseling services, and seminars are available in the Austin area throughout the entire calendar year to assist patients who have embarked upon their weight loss journeys.
