Bariatric (weight loss) surgery has many benefits that can lead to a healthier, higher quality of life. Combined with effective treatment and a commitment to long-term lifestyle changes, bariatric surgery can offer a better chance for a longer life. A clinical study shows that gastric bypass surgery improves a patient’s life expectancy by 89 percent, and a review of more than 22,000 bariatric surgery patients showed improvement in or complete resolution of other conditions, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea.

It’s important to understand bariatric surgery and whether it’s right for you. Our team uses guidelines set by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is usually recommended for people who:

  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater
  • Have a BMI of 35 or greater with one or more obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or sleep apnea

Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is not an immediate fix. It’s a positive, ongoing process of change and is meant to help you lose excess body weight, improve or resolve other life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and sleep apnea, and maintain a new, healthy body weight.

If you find yourself struggling with weight loss or one or more obesity-related health conditions, bariatric surgery could be right for you.
