Studies show that if you're 100 or more pounds over ideal body weight, bariatric (weight loss) surgery may improve health conditions including diabetes, hypertension, joint pain, and sleep apnea.
Anyone with a body mass index (BMI)
of 40 or greater, or a BMI of 35 or greater with two significant health problems related to their weight may be eligible for bariatric surgery.
Prior to your first appointment with a surgeon, sign up for a bariatric surgery seminar where you’ll have a chance to ask questions and learn more. All of our seminars are led by bariatric surgeons.
