Qualifications for surgery at Bariatric Surgery Center Denver

To be a candidate for bariatric surgery, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • BMI (body mass index) more than 40
  • BMI between 35 and 40 who suffer from at least two obesity related diseases (i.e., diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease)
  • Patients who have failed non-surgical methods of weight loss (i.e., diet, exercise, medication)
  • Patients who are not suffering from any other disease that could have caused them to be overweight
  • No history of alcohol or substance abuse

Patients should be well informed and motivated for the lifestyle change that follows bariatric surgery, and they should have the capacity to ensure participation in treatment and long-term follow-up. Ultimately, the decision to have the procedure is entirely up to you. After learning more about the program and process, you can decide if surgery is right for you.

Weight-loss surgery is only a tool; your ultimate success depends on life-long adherence to recommended dietary, exercise and lifestyle changes.
