Are You a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is not for everyone, but it might be the best choice for you. To qualify for our bariatric program the following conditions should be met:

  • You are 100 pounds or more over your "ideal body weight," according to the established weight charts.
  • You have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40 with no co-morbidities, or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities.
  • You have tried to lose weight in different ways but are still severely obese.
  • You are unable to perform routine daily activities without serious difficulty.
  • You understand the procedure and accept the lifestyle changes you will need to make after bariatric surgery.
  • You are motivated to make a lifelong behavioral commitment that includes well-balanced meals and physical exercise.
  • You understand that this surgery won't solve all your problems, but can make you healthier -- and probably much happier.
