On Track Program
Griffin Bariatrics is committed to empowering healthy living in a healing environment, and that’s why we designed our bariatric support program for excellent care and long-term success after bariatric surgery. Griffin Bariatrics’ On Track program is part of this commitment to providing comprehensive education and support at the time patients need it the most.
The On Track program addresses the special needs of the pre and post-op bariatric surgery patients. Some patients gain some of the weight back after time has passed after the surgery. This is not uncommon, and we have designed a special, “judgement-free” support program to help patients stay “on track” to healthier weight loss and weight management. Anyone who had bariatric surgery in Connecticut can join our On Track program.
Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
In light of COVID-19 we are now offering virtual support group meetings with Zoom video conferencing. If you are interested in joining the virtual support group, please contact Kelly Miller for the meeting link. Kelly can be emailed directly at [email protected].
Our support and therapy groups are led by our Chaplains and/or licensed psychological staff who can provide you with specialized support and encouragement. Groups will address issues such as motivation, challenging negative and self-sabotaging behaviors, body image, depression, addiction issues, and more.
LOW IMPACT EXERCISE CLASSES
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday- 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Saturday – 9:00am to 10am
Both before and after bariatric surgery, exercise is encouraged in order to maximize outcomes. However, it is important to increase your activity slowly to avoid injury. Our bariatric program offers low impact exercise classes in Griffin Hospital’s state-of-the-art gymnasium. Our exercise program provides a safe, comfortable environment for weight loss surgery patients. Each attendee will get a personalized assessment and recommendation for a personalized exercise plan. Cost is $50 per month.
