Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgery
Weight loss surgery should be viewed first and foremost as a way to alleviate debilitating, chronic disease. In most cases, the minimum qualification to be a candidate for the procedure is an excess 100 pounds above your ideal body weight, or a Body Mass Index of 40 or greater. Occasionally, a procedure will be considered for someone with a BMI of 35 or higher. In these cases, the person’s doctor needs to conclude that obesity-related health conditions have led to a medical need for weight reduction, and that surgery is the only way to accomplish this.
