Patients must meet specific criteria, based on guidelines established by the IFSO-Asian Pacific (APC) , before they will be considered for an evaluation with our team. Most patients who enter our program have a BMI greater 37 or BMI than 32 with the existence of co-morbidities (Metabolic syndrome).

Other factors that suggest surgery may be a good option include:

    1. You have a BMI over 40.
    2. You have serious medical conditions related to weight, such as diabetes, sleep apnea or heart disease.
    3. You are between 18 and 65 years old (with some exceptions).
    4. You have a long history of obesity, with many failed formal, structured and/or documented attempts at weight loss.
    5. You have no current issues with drug or alcohol abuse.
    6. You have no serious psychiatric illness, such as problems that could impair your ability to follow a program of lifetime health management and follow-up.
