To qualify for weight loss surgery, if insured, you will need to satisfy the criteria requirements of your insurer. We will get those criteria and discuss them with you at your first visit. If self paying, criteria of the National Institute of Health will be followed, and we will also discuss those with you. The FDA has approved Lap-Band usage for patients with a BMI of 30 if they are being treated for major medical issues such as Diabetes, Cholesterol Elevation, High Blood Pressure, and/or Sleep Apnea.
With over 5,000 procedures performed, we are equipped to answer most of your questions accurately without delay.
