If diet, exercise and other weight-loss methods haven’t worked, bariatric surgery may be a viable option. In most cases, you may be a good fit for weight-loss surgery if you:
- Have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40, or be 100 pounds overweight
- Have a BMI of 35 or greater with one or more additional health problems such as diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension or degenerative joint disease
- Have had minimal success at serious and multiple attempts to lose weight via nonsurgical methods
- Are ready to commit to making substantial lifestyle changes, including eating habits and exercise
- Avoid drinking alcohol in excess and refrain from smoking
Our programs help address the physical, mental and emotional challenges of weight-loss surgery by developing a personalized care plan specifically designed to help you meet and maintain your goals.
