Are You A Candidate?

If you have tried losing weight without success, have health problems related to obesity and are ready to make permanent lifestyle changes, then weight loss surgery may be right for you.

Regardless of the factors that led to excess weight, weight loss surgery can help you make the changes needed to achieve sustainable weight loss.

You may be eligible for weight loss surgery if you have a BMI of 40 or above OR a BMI over 35 with at least one obesity-related health condition.

Conditions that may make you eligible for weight loss surgery include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea

If you are struggling with any of the above health conditions and have tried losing weight in the past, contact your weight loss surgeon to discuss your eligibility for bariatric surgery.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

Your body mass index (BMI) is a weight to height ratio and is a helpful indicator of total body fat. While there are some limitations with BMI calculators, they do provide you and your weight loss surgeon with an idea of how much weight you may need to lose.

Calculate your BMI to find out if you are a good candidate for weight loss surgery.
