Eligibility for Bariatric Surgery

Criteria 

Bariatric surgery is a great way to help build a healthy lifestyle, but it's not for everyone. For weight loss surgery to be a viable option, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • A body mass index, or BMI of 35 or more OR 
  • BMI of 30-25 with obesity related diseases 
    • High cholesterol 
    • High blood pressure 
    • Sleep apnea 
    • Diabetes 
    • Heart or lung disease

Disclaimer: Surgery may be associated with its problems, such as infection, poor wound healing, and rarely even death. Therefore, you and your surgeon should carefully discuss the risks of your current health condition compared to the risks and benefits of surgery.

Options for Non-Eligible Candidates

If bariatric surgery isn't an option, Mercy also offers non-surgical weight loss methods. There are a number of factors that can impact your eligibility for bariatric surgery, but even if you’re not eligible, weight loss is still an essential step toward leading a healthy life. 

Mercy has dedicated healthcare professionals who specialize in other types of weight loss and we’re all here to help. Talk to a weight management specialist today.
