Are You a Candidate

Who is a good candidate for weight loss surgery?

  • Adults ages 18 to 60 who have a BMI over 40 (calculate your BMI), thus being greater than 100 pounds overweight .

  • Adults with a BMI between 35 and 40, thus being approximately 75 pounds overweight, who have obesity-related medical complications, such as diabetes, heart disease, or sleep apnea.

    • Adults with a BMI between 35 and 40 without obesity-related complications can request that their primary physician order a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) and SPLIT sleep study to determine if they have diabetes or sleep apnea.


  • Those who have failed to lose weight by non-surgical means (weight loss programs, diets, etc). Some insurance companies may require documentation of participation in at least one weight loss program.

  • Those willing to commit to a lifelong change of proper diet, exercise, and medical follow up.
