Am I a Candidate?

There are many factors to consider when deciding if a bariatric procedure is for you. Your age, health status and lifestyle habits play an important role in helping to determine whether a weight loss procedure is an appropriate option.

Minimum guidelines for weight loss procedures:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Body mass index (BMI) greater than 40
  • BMI between 35-39.9 combined with at least one obesity-related health problem; diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea or degenerative joint disease

Other guidelines:

  • Inability to lose weight, and keep it off, through diet and exercise
  • Ready to commit to a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Understand your surgical options, risks, complications and what is required after surgery
  • You are healthy enough to undergo surgery

Don’t meet these qualifications?

If you have a BMI between 30 and 35, you may still qualify for certain procedures.
