Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?

7614_bariatric_clinic_082

Bariatric surgery can help patients lose weight and live a healthy life. Before surgery, you will need to meet specific criteria to ensure that you are medically ready for surgery. Long-term success after surgery will require commiting to a healthy, active lifestyle.

Bariatric and surgery may be right for you if:

  • You have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40 or a BMI greater than 35.
  • You are 18 years of age or older.
  • You have one or more obesity-related conditions (known as comorbid conditions), such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
  • You've been unable to lose weight and keep it off through traditional methods like 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.

Ultimately, only you and your surgeon can evaluate your situation and decide if surgery is right for you.
