Bariatric Surgery/ Weight Loss Surgery
Weight-loss surgery is a lifesaving and life-changing treatment for severely obese patients who have not had success with traditional, medically supervised weight-loss strategies such as diet modification, exercise, and/ or medication.
Eligibility for Bariatric Surgery
Countless people would like to lose weight, but only those whose high weight poses a threat to their lives (the severely or “morbidity” obese) are considered viable candidates for undergoing bariatric surgery.
Severe obesity is typically diagnosed based on a patient’s body mass index or ratio of fat to lean body mass. In general, people with a BMI greater than 35 are diagnosed as severely obese.
To qualify for bariatric surgery in the Indian subcontinent, patients must typically:
- Have a minimum BMI of 35 for at least five years, or a minimum BMI of 33.5 with significant medical complications related to obesity, known as co-morbidities
- Be between the ages of 18 and 65 years. Patients older or younger may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
