Am I a Candidate?

While candidacy for weight loss surgery varies from patient to patient, successful candidates fit general criteria including:

  • For those with a history of unsuccessful attempts to lose weight via conventional methods.
  • For those with a BMI of 40 or more, or a BMI of 35 or more in conjunction with a weight-related disease such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea. (For those with a BMI of 30 or more could be a candidate for the Lap Band.)
  • For those with a BMI between 28  and 35, the Orbera Gastric Balloon procedure is an option.
  • Age between 18 and 65. (Those under 18 or above 65 are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.)
