Meet Our Patients

At VA Boston Healthcare System, we have been performing bariatric surgery for New England area veterans since 2009.  We have helped many of patients achieve significant weight loss, but more importantly, we have helped them have a new chance at an active life.

As a prospective or past bariatric surgery patient, we invite you to attend our monthly support group, which is held the first Monday of every month from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.  This is held at our West Roxbury, MA VA campus in building 1, 3rd floor Khuri conference room (on the left just before the Barsamian Auditorium).  This meeting is also available via video-conferencing (CVT) at many of our VISN’s hospitals and CBOCs.

If you are interested in attending our support group, please contact your local MOVE Bariatric team to be scheduled for an appointment to the WX Move Bariatric Support Group.

If you are newly starting your journey and are considering bariatric surgery, we also invite you to join us for our WX MOVE Bariatric Surgery Informational Session.  This is currently being held the third Monday of every month from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at our West Roxbury, MA VA campus in building 1, 3rd floor Khuri conference room (on the left just before the Barsamian Auditorium).  Stay tuned for patient testimonials! This meeting is also available via video conferencing (CVT) at many of our VISN's hospitals and CBOCs.
