Qualifications for Surgery

One of the main qualifications for Bariatric Surgery is your Body Mass Index, (BMI), which is a calculation of your height versus your weight.

To qualify for surgery, most insurance companies require a BMI greater than 40 without weight-related medical problems (example: hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc.) or a BMI greater than 35 with weight-related medical problems.

For those patients that do not qualify for surgery, or who are not ready for weight loss surgery, we are still here to help achieve your goals with our non-surgical weight loss program.
