Are you a candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
Obesity is very difficult to treat. Many patients have tried multiple diets, medications and exercise regimes with results that did not last. Surgery to promote weight loss by restricting food intake is an option for morbidly obese patients that have been unsuccessful with other weight loss treatments.
Eligible patients for weight loss surgery would usually have a body mass index, or BMI, of 33, or greater, however each patient is evaluated individually depending on medical co-morbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and orthopaedic issues. You can work out your BMI by using the calculator below.
