Is Weight-Loss Surgery Right for You
Bariatric surgery can be a weight-loss treatment option for people who are severally obese and have repeatedly been unsuccessful losing weight through diet and exercise, or who suffer from serious obesity-related health problems.

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.
