Are You a Candidate?

Bookmark and Share

Weight loss surgery is not for everyone. You must have a body mass index (BMI) over 40 or a BMI of 35 to 39.9 with other obesity related diseases. Knowing your BMI is the first step in determining if you’re a candidate for weight loss surgery.

Calculate Your BMI

If your BMI is within the range, your weight loss journey begins when you attend a bariatric information session. During this presentation, the bariatric team teaches about obesity and the options our Signature Care program provides. You are then scheduled to see one of our surgeons and the rest of the team in our office to help you determine if you are a good candidate for weight loss surgery and which surgery would be best for you. Like any major surgery, there are potential risks and side effects to consider, and these are discussed in detail during your visit.
