Is Weight Loss Surgery For Me?

Obesity is the excess accumulation of body fat, to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health. It can lead to reduced life expectancy and increased health conditions such as certain types of cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, acid reflux, sleep apnea and type II diabetes.

Weight loss surgery is an option for individuals who:

  • Are 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight or
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher or
  • Have a BMI of 35 to 39.9 with a diagnosed weight-related health problem, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or obstructive sleep apnea.
  • And are at least 18 years old.
