Patient Classes & Support

To help ensure the safety of our community during the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, MyNewSelf patient education classes and Celebrate Success™ support groups are being held online. To register for a session, please call our office at 314-966-9640 and we will send you the link.

Education for Weight Loss Patients
Support groups and classes are a valuable resource for surgical weight loss patients. Education, encouragement and support work together to help you reach and maintain weight loss goals.

You're not in this alone. Free patient support groups and programs are available to help you on your weight loss journey.
Pre-Op Classes
Our physicians require taking a class before surgery to help prepare for the lifestyle changes you will need to make. You'll walk away with a detailed nutrition notebook that covers lifestyle, supplements, diet progression and post-op exercise recommendations. During the class, we will answer your questions and concerns so you can go into your procedure feeling confident and ready for success.

Pre-operative classes last about 1 1/2 hours and are held at 3 p.m. on Mondays and 8:30 am on Fridays via Webex. Please call our dietitians to sign up at 314-966-9640.
Alumni Classes and Support Groups
All patient alumni can join us for post-op nutrition and healthy living classes and facilitated peer support groups. Both events are held online via webex on the second Tuesday of the month.  For specific topics and schedules, visit the events section of the MyNewSelf FaceBook page.
