Eligibility Criteria for Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery can often benefit morbidly obese people or those with debilitating co-morbidities who have been unable to lose weight through other methods. You are considered morbidly obese if you:

  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 35
  • Are experiencing severe negative health effects related to obesity, such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Cannot achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, even through medically supervised dieting

We invite you to take this brief self-assessment to learn if you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery.  Please note that final eligibility for bariatric surgery must be determined by a physician.
