Bariatric and Weight Loss Surgery Eligibility for Bariatric Surgery:

Countless people would like to lose weight, but only those whose heavy weight possesses a threat to their lives (the severely or “morbidity” obese) are considered viable candidates for undergoing bariatric surgery.

Diagnosis and treatment of severe obesity starts based on a patient’s body mass index or ratio of fat to lean body mass. In general, severely obese are those who have a BMI greater than 35.

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.

In addition to our highly proficient team of surgeons, the multi-disciplinary team complementing the entire bariatric treatment procedure includes:

  • Endocrinologists
  • Gastroenterologists
  • Psychologists
