Support Sessions

Weight loss support group meetings are presented by Dr. Walter J. Chlysta, one of the first surgeons to introduce minimally invasive bariatric surgery to Northeast Ohio and the first surgeon to perform minimally invasive weight loss surgery in Summit County. His total patient-centered approach has allowed for the successful performance of more than 1,000 bariatric procedures – all with excellent results.

Bariatric surgery support sessions focus on post-operative education, support and motivation for patients and their families. In addition to guest speakers, there will be a group discussion to allow patients an opportunity to share with each other.

Information sessions are held monthly, at 6 p.m. at Western Reserve Hospital Auditorium – 1900 23rd Street, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223
