Who can benefit from bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is recommended only for patients suffering from severe chronic obesity. This is a condition that is often difficult, if not impossible, to treat with diet and exercise alone.

Bariatric surgery is generally performed on patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than or equal to 35 kg/m2, or about 100 pounds over their normal weight. In some cases, the procedure is recommended for patients with a lower BMI if they have health conditions that include hypertension, diabetes, asthma, or sleep apnea.

Knowing your BMI can help screen any weight-associated health problems you may be at risk for. You can use this calculator to determine your BMI; however, we recommend an official diagnosis with one of our top surgeons.

What should you do if your BMI is above normal? Talk to your healthcare provider about achieving a healthier weight, or request an appointment with us by completing our questionnaire.
