You may be an appropriate candidate if you meet the following criteria:

  • You have a BMI of greater than 40 or greater than 35 with two related conditions (co-morbidities) such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and/or reflux disease. You may still qualify for surgery without meeting these criteria. Please consult with our bariatric coordinator.
  • You have made attempts to lose weight by conservative methods such as Weight Watchers.
  • You are prepared to make significant changes in your eating habits and lifestyle.
