Is Weight-loss Surgery Right for You?

If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater (or 35 to 39, if you have a diagnosed, severe, obesity-related health problem), and have tried multiple times to lose the weight on your own with little success, then surgery can be a safe and effective tool to achieve sustained weight loss and reverse related health conditions. Call 917-4753 to make an appointment with our bariatric team and find out what program best meets your needs.

Physicians recommend bariatric surgery when:

  • All other attempts at weight loss have failed.
  • Health conditions have created a medical need for surgery.
  • Surgery seems to be the only option to achieve necessary weight loss.
  • The patient is physically and mentally stable enough for major surgery.
