Obesity is a chronic medical condition that can lead to significant lifelong health complications.  Weight loss surgery is one option to achieve lasting weight loss results.  If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is 40+ (or 35+ with additional health complications)*, you should explore weight loss surgery as one of your options to make a healthy change.  Use our BMI calculator to figure out your BMI today!

 

*Individual insurance plans may have different guidelines for coverage.  You should check with your plan for coverage options.
