Do many people qualify for weight loss surgery?

Nearly 5% of the U.S. population meet the criteria for weight loss surgery, including those with a BMI (body mass index) of 40 or greater and those with a BMI of 35 or greater with severe health complications.

Millions of Americans have found that diet, exercise and medications alone are not sufficient to lose their excess weight. Years of failed dieting and weight gain and loss often change a person’s metabolism, making it more difficult to lose weight and keep it off.

Based on your insurance and our program requirements, we will let you know from the start whether you are a candidate for surgery.
