Do I qualify for bariatric surgery?

A key indicator of necessary treatment is the patient’s body mass index (BMI). We also consider the patient’s overall health, lifestyle and personal preferences. Typically, patients with a BMI of 35 or less are considered candidates for non-surgical medical treatment. Patients with a BMI of 36 or greater who have significant associated health conditions, or patients with a BMI of 40 or higher, are generally candidates for surgery.
