Use our BMI Calculator Below to Find Out if You are a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery.
Patient selection for weight loss surgery is based on the National Institutes of Health criteria:
- 100 pounds or more above ideal body weight or a BMI of 40 or above
- BMI of 35 or greater with one or more obesity-related health conditions
The individual in the example above would be classified as morbidly obese and would meet the initial eligibility for weight loss surgery.
