Are you a candidate? You are an ideal candidate for a weight loss procedure if you:
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:
|Bariatric Procedure||Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator and Additional Qualifications|
|Gastric Balloon||BMI of 30-40|
|Adjustable Gastric Band||BMI of ≥30 plus have 1 or more obesity-related medical conditions|
|Gastric Sleeve / Gastric Bypass||BMI of ≥35 plus have 1 or more obesity-related medical conditions OR BMI of ≥40 without any obesity-related medical conditions|
For people who have been obese for years, the decision to undergo weight loss surgery or other bariatric procedures is life changing. Surgical and non-surgical weight loss options are designed to treat obesity by changing the amount of food a person can consume and, therefore, reducing the amount of food a patient needs to feel satisfied. A few of Northside’s Center for Weight Loss patients discuss their journey here.
