Weight Loss Surgery
Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?
If diet and exercise haven’t provided the results you need, you might be a good candidate for surgical weight loss. Obesity can cause problems beyond simply carrying around extra weight. It may lead to a wide range of health conditions — from heart disease and high blood pressure to depression, infertility and joint problems.
Surgery may help you lose weight and may also make you healthier, possibly adding years to your life.

Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Other weight loss procedures, such as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding with the Lap Band® and endoscopic balloon procedures, are also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in certain people with a BMI of 30 to 35. Weight loss procedures are considered safe, but like many types of medical intervention, they do have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss procedures.
