Weight Loss Surgery

On Your Way To A Healthier You

Bariatric surgery is known to be one of the most effective and long-lasting treatments for obesity and many other health-related conditions. The World Health Organization now recognizes obesity as a chronic, progressive disease resulting from multiple environmental and genetic factors. In addition to weight loss, bariatric surgery has shown to also treat type II diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnea.

You may qualify for bariatric surgery if you fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • 1. BMI is ≥ 40.
  • 2. More than 100 pounds excess weight.
  • 3. BMI is > 35 with one or more obesity-related conditions such as type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis or heart disease.
  • 4. Unable to maintain a healthy weight for a period of time with prior weight loss efforts.
