Bariatric Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery has been gaining popularity over the past several years, and may be available to you as a tool for weight loss.

To qualify for this procedure, potential patients must meet criteria set by the National Institutes of Health. For example, a person must have a minimum BMI of 40, or a BMI of 35 with associated co-morbidities. In addition, prospective patients are required to have tried other weight loss methods or treatments already.
