Are you a candidate? You are an ideal candidate for a weight loss procedure if you:

  • Have decided that you want to change your life and improve your health. 
  • Want to get down on the floor to play with the kids and get up with ease.
  • Want to feel confident about your appearance for personal and professional reasons.
  • Want to stop dreading plane rides and movies out just because the seats don’t fit comfortably.
  • Want to stop taking up to 15 pills a day for everything from arthritis to high cholesterol.
  • Want to be healthy and happy. 

Undergoing a weight loss procedure is not a quick fix.  It also has potential risks. The options available at Northside Hospital are intended for patients that have a long history of obesity and whose efforts to lose weight have resulted in repeated failure and frustration. Consult with your health care provider to determine the best option for you.

Candidates are eligible for various non-surgical and surgical weight loss options based on the following criteria below:
