Are You A Candidate?

Are you a candidate for weight-loss surgery? Are you a candidate for weight loss surgery?

For patients who remain severely obese after conventional approaches to weight loss, such as diet and exercise, have failed, or for patients who have an obesity-related disease, surgery may be the best treatment option.
 
Answering the following questions may help you decide if surgery is right for you:
 
  • Are you morbidly obese (have a BMI over 40)?
  • Do you have a BMI greater than 35 with one or more significant obesity related conditions including high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and a family history or early coronary heart disease?
  • Have you tried dieting in the past? Has it been combined with simultaneous behavior therapy and exercise?
  • Have you been carefully evaluated by a team of medical, surgical, behavioral and nutrition experts?
  • Do you understand the gastric bypass and/or gastric banding procedure?
  • Are you committed to lifelong follow-up care and lifestyle changes?
  • If you have depression or excessive stress, has it been adequately treated?
  • Do you have a realistic expectation and are motivated?
  • Are you between 16 and 70 years old (with some exceptions)?

Find out if  weight-loss surgery is right for you by contacting Doctors Hospital at Renaissance Bariatric and Metabolic Institute.
