Am I a Candidate

What's my BMI?

Obesity is most commonly measured by using Body Mass Index (BMI), which is determined by your weight and height. The BMI calculator can help you estimate your BMI.

To be a candidate for weight loss surgery, you must:

  • Have a BMI of 40 or greater.
  • If your BMI is between 35 and 40, you must have at least one significant associated illness such as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis or sleep apnea.
  • Have a personal ongoing commitment to improving your health and lifestyle.
