Am I a Candidate?

Bariatric Surgery Requirements

Body Mass Index, also known as BMI, is a formula based on your height and weight which determines your weight classification. It is one of a number of bariatric surgery requirements that will help determine whether you qualify for weight-loss surgery. Use our BMI calculator to get started.

Calculate Your BMI

Calculate your BMI score using the calculator below.

You may be a candidate if:

  • If your BMI is between 35 and 39.9 _and_ you have severe obesity-related medical conditions
  • If your BMI is 40 or greater, with or without obesity related medical conditions
