The Gastric Sleeve Center at Jackson South Medical Center specializes in the laparoscopic gastric sleeve procedure, one of the newest and most successful bariatric procedures. Also known as laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive techniques enable most patients to recover more quickly and experience less pain, with less risk for blood loss and infection. The center is home to two pioneering bariatric surgeons who, between them, have authored articles on the gastric sleeve procedure, hold several bariatric patents and train hundreds of surgeons every year.

Post-Op Support Group Schedule
Our support groups are meant to help those who have recently undergone bariatric surgery cope with and commit to the change in lifestyle that the procedure brings. Bariatric surgery is just one step in the journey toward your ideal weight. The other element is commitment on the part of our patients. It is not always easy to stay strong after surgery and that is the focus of our support groups. We are dedicated to your success through effective aftercare.
Our support groups meet on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
Jackson South Medical Center
9333 S.W. 152 Street

*Our Support Groups are held in the Mini-Executive Conference Room. Ask the nursing staff to direct you.
