Bariatrics surgery is the most effective and lasting treatment for severe obesity, yet many patients don't even know they qualify for it.
You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if:
Your body mass index (BMI) is 40+ (or 35+ with the presence of diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, or other serious complications of obesity).
Previous attempts at weight loss have been unsuccessful.
No medical or psychological conditions exist that would interfere with weight loss success.
You are motivated and willing to commit to the lifestyle changes necssary for long-term success.
Even if you don't qualify for bariatric surgery, you may qualify for a non-surgical solution. Get in touch to learn more about your options.
