Am I a Candidate?

Are you wondering: "Am I a candidate for weight loss surgery?" We can help! Bariatric surgery is performed at New York City obesity surgery center. To provide you with a comprehensive list, all of the following qualifications must be met:

    • A BMI of 40 or more: With high-risk co-morbid conditions, a BMI of 35 may qualify.
    • Because surgery is a very serious undertaking, generally, candidates must have tried non-surgical treatments such as dietary programs, behavioral modification, and exercise. 
    • There must be no medical or hormonal reason for the clinically severe obesity. These conditions are rare, but require treatment of the underlying medical problem.
    • The candidate must be fully informed about the surgery and what can be expected both as to weight loss and possible complications. 
    • The candidate must demonstrate a willingness to accept the risks of surgery and to make dramatic lifelong changes in his/her lifestyle, dietary habits, exercise, and to commit to medical follow-up.
