Pathway to Surgery

The decision to have weight loss surgery should be taken very seriously. It should be considered a lifelong commitment. In order to qualify you must meet criteria that is set forth by the National Institute of Health and is followed by our surgeons.

  • You are 100 pounds or more overweight with a BMI of 40 or greater or a BMI of 35 or greater
  • Along with one or more co-morbidities (Obstructive sleep apnea, Type II Diabetes, hypertension, etc.)
  • You must show that you have been unsuccessful with either supervised or unsupervised dieting
  • You need to be optimized by your regular medical doctor for surgery and you need to undergo a psychological screen to see if you are a candidate for surgery
