Patient Resources

We Offer Lifelong Support 

Our care starts from the very first time you contact us and will continue for as long as you need us. This is a journey that will last the rest of your life. That’s why we offer comprehensive post-operative support services, at no additional charge.

Support Group Registration gives you all the guidance you need to keep the weight off for good. 

Gastric Band Support Groups

Boone Hospital Center has a bariatric program support group called “Through Thick & Thin”. The group meets the second Thursday evening of each month from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The meetings are open to those that are seriously considering surgery or those that have had surgery. All pre-op patients are required to attend at least one meeting before surgery.

We generally cover a specific topic that the group has requested and then the remaining time is spent with Q & A for the group.

LOCATION: All meetings are currently being held via Zoom.

One in-person meetings resume, all meetings are held in Broadway Medical Plaza 3, large conference room (1701 E. Broadway, Columbia, MO 65201). This building is located directly across from Boone Hospital Center on Broadway. Take the elevators or stairs to the third floor and the classroom is immediately to your left once you exit the elevator.
