Qualification for bariatric surgery is based largely on a calculation called your Body Mass Index (BMI). This calculation is determined by your height and weight.
Your BMI gives you an understanding of the level of risk to your health. Patients with a BMI greater than 30 are considered obese and are at risk for developing serious health issues, including diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipemia, and heart disease. A consultation with RioSurgical Weight Loss can determine if a medical or nutritional approach may be best.
You may be a candidate if:
Your BMI is greater than or equal to 40.
Your BMI is greater than or equal to 35 and you have comorbidities, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or sleep apnea.
Your BMI is greater than or equal to 30. You may qualify for Lap-Band® surgery.
Use our BMI Calculator to determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery. Call us to discuss your options further with RioSurgical Weight Loss at 210-359-0051.
