Weight loss surgery, or bariatric surgery, is a life-changing procedure that can help you take control of your weight and improve many obesity-related health conditions.

 

If you’re considering weight loss surgery, follow the steps below to get started.

1

Make Sure Weight Loss Surgery Is Right for You

You might be a good candidate for weight loss surgery if you have:

  • A body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher
  • One or more weight-related medical conditions and have a BMI of 35+
  • A record of unsuccessful weight loss attempts

2

Understand Your Insurance Coverage

Most insurance companies offer coverage for weight loss surgery, but the amount covered can vary by plan and by provider, and many providers require certain criteria be met.

 

We can help you determine the coverage your insurance plan offers, as well as understand the presurgery criteria required to obtain coverage.

Choose Your Weight Loss Surgeon

It’s important to choose a team that’s right for you. Our board-certified surgeons are skilled in minimally invasive weight loss surgical procedures and are supported by nurses, dietitians, counselors and an exercise physiologist.

Sally Mann struggled with her weight for several decades before losing more than 99 pounds as a result of her weight loss surgery. Her motivations for having the surgery were her declining health and wanting to ensure a future with her young son.

 

“Now that I’ve lost weight, feel better and am taking care of myself, I feel like I’m going be around for a lot longer than I would’ve been prior to surgery. It’s a good feeling.”

 

 

Samantha Hill-Dixon’s life changed after her weight loss surgery. Before, she just wanted to stay in bed and rest. Now, she feels great and has more energy.

 

“I’m now the person that wants to get out and go all the time. I want to put on different clothes. I want to go shopping. Before I wasn’t that type of person. But this is me now. I have a whole new life and I am grateful.”
