You may qualify for bariatric surgery if you have:
- a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more (approx 100 lbs overweight for men or 80 lbs overweight for women)
- a BMI between 35 and 39.9 and a serious obesity-related health problem such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or severe sleep apnea
- an understanding of the lifetime behavior modifications (our team will teach you!) that you will need to make in addition to the surgery
After attending an informational session, you will be scheduled for an initial consultation with the surgeon and our care team. Each patient will undergo routine testing and consultations with other physicians to be sure you are a good candidate for weight loss surgery. Our team will also help you tackle the insurance approval process.
