If your BMI was higher than 30, you may be an eligible candidate for weight loss surgery.

Additional criteria:

  • Because bariatric surgery is a very serious undertaking, generally candidates must have tried non-surgical treatments such as dietary programs, behavioral modification, and exercise.
  • There must be no medical or hormonal reason for the clinically severe obesity. These conditions are rare, but require treatment of the underlying medical problem.
  • The candidate must be fully informed about the surgery and realistic expectations pertaining to weight loss and possible complications
  • The candidate must demonstrate a willingness to accept the risks of surgery and to make dramatic lifelong changes in his/her lifestyle, dietary habits, exercise, and to commit to medical follow-up.
