Is weight-loss surgery right for you?

Obesity is a chronic medical condition which, if not addressed, will have significant medical complications. Generally, the criteria for surgical weight loss procedures is a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater; or, BMI of 35 or greater if the patient has associated medical conditions that are related to obesity.  Individual insurance carriers may have different guidelines for coverage.
