Am I a candidate for bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a personal decision that only you can make. Generally, bariatric surgery is recommended for patients who have unsuccessfully tried diets, exercise and nutritional counseling — and who are committed to making lifestyle changes.

Certain health conditions, however, may qualify you as a bariatric surgery candidate:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40. Men and women who are more than 100 pounds overweight.

  • Have a BMI of 35-40 with an obesity-related condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease or sleep apnea.

  • Can’t achieve sustained weight loss with only diet and exercise.

  • Are committed to lifestyle changes in diet, exercise and behavior.

  • Are committed to lifelong follow-up medical care.
