Are You a Candidate?

Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?


Bariatric surgery is an effective way to lose weight, achieve health milestones and live a healthy life. The combination of establishing healthy eating habits with the assistance of our dieticians, bariatric surgery performed by one of our board-certified physicians and increasing your activity level is an equation for success.

You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you meet the following qualifications:

  • You have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40.
  • You have a BMI greater than 35 with one or more weight-related conditions (known as comorbidities), such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
  • You are unable to achieve and maintain significant weight loss through traditional methods such as diet and exercise.
  • You're ready to commit to a healthy, active lifestyle.
  • You don't have medical conditions that could cause serious complications during or after surgery.
  • You understand the surgery benefits, risks and complications, and you have a full understanding of what to expect.

Are You a Good Candidate for Weight-Loss Surgery?

Take our free, personalized Weight-Loss Surgery Assessment to determine if you are a candidate. Upon completion you'll receive personalized results that include your BMI and any qualifying weight-related health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or sleep apnea, all of which may be improved or completely resolved following surgery.
