Am I a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?Conveniently located to serve Fountain Valley, CA
Smart Dimensions™ offers a compassionate program that provides comprehensive care and support to help morbidly obese patients in Los Angeles and Orange County understand if they are a candidate for bariatric surgery.
At Smart Dimensions, we understand that the choice to undergo bariatric surgery can be a difficult one. We have provided some general guidelines to help you in your decision about bariatric surgery. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for treatment, however, is to call our Orange County practice and schedule a consultation appointment.
Candidates for Bariatric Surgery
To be considered for bariatric surgery, you need to meet the following conditions:
- You should be at least 100 pounds over your ideal weight
- Your BMI, or body mass index should be 40 or higher
- If your BMI is 35 or higher, you should be experiencing compounding medical conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure
- Medically supervised weight loss has proven unsuccessful
Our team can take the time to evaluate your current health and diagnose the severity of your obesity in order to determine if you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery. Our goal is to provide all of our patients with the personalized care they need to live healthier lives.
Even if you do not meet the requirements for bariatric surgery, excess weight can place your health in jeopardy. You should discuss your condition with your physician to determine a plan to reduce your weight to a healthier level.
What Does Bariatric Surgery Cost?
The best way to calculate the cost of robotic sleeve surgery is to meet with a bariatric surgeon. Several factors affect the price of the surgery, and these are best discussed on a case-to-case basis.
Because bariatric surgery offers long-term health benefits, insurance companies will often cover the cost or some of the cost of the procedure. Our team can help you figure out if your insurance will cover your procedure.
