Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery is reserved for those most severely affected by obesity and it's related conditions. In general, you must be more than 35lbs above your ideal body weight with an associated medical condition or 100lbs over ideal body weight.

Most insurances, however, utilize the BMI (Body Mass Index) scale to determine eligibility for weight loss surgery. Patients with BMI greater than 35 with associated medical conditions may qualify for weight loss surgery. Also patients with a BMI greater than 40, regardless of their medical conditions, may qualify for surgery. See where your BMI is, by utilizing the BMI calculator above.
