Bariatric Surgery Process


Are you a Candidate?

In the United States, more than 30 percent of adults are considered obese. Much more than an aesthetic concern, obesity can cause various health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis.

A common misconception about weight loss surgery is that it’s only for the morbidly obese. You may be surprised to find that you could be a candidate for weight loss surgery if you are only 50 pounds overweight.

We believe it’s important to consider weight loss surgery even before major health issues arise.

While most overweight and obese individuals try to lose excess pounds through diet and exercise, many of them fail. Sometimes, the reason for failure is beyond one’s control because of genetics or disease. If you are one of these people, weight loss surgery might be the answer.

While candidacy for weight loss surgery varies from patient to patient,

Approved candidates generally include the following criteria:

  • Between the ages of 16-70 years old.
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or above.
  • Experiencing severe negative health effects, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, lipid abnormalities, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disease or sleep apnea.
  • Inability to achieve a healthy weight loss sustained for a prolonged period with prior conventional weight loss efforts.
  • Committed to making healthy lifestyle changes, which include following proper nutritional guidelines and exercise programs.
  • Not dependent on drugs and alcohol.
  • Have realistic goals about the outcome of the procedure.

Benefits of Weight-loss Surgery

Obesity of any type is a complex medical condition often associated with many additional medical manifestations other than just being overweight.

In addition, chronic joint and back pain, depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety, other sleep disorders, and sexual dysfunction are also related to this disease.


Over time, the state of your health will worsen if you remain obese. While there is no specific cure, lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise combined with surgical treatment can help you lose weight and improve virtually every aspect of your health.


In addition to its many health benefits, bariatric surgery can help improve the patient’s overall mood and psychological health. As such, patients who have undergone these procedures report decreased feelings of depression and anxiety, as well as an increase in energy to take up more active lifestyles post-surgery.
