How do I know if I'm a candidate for weight loss surgery?

Of course, that would ultimately be determined through a personal consultation with a qualified surgeon at Barix Clinics. However, there are some basic standards that can help give you an idea of your situation. As a general rule, you should be at least 100 pounds overweight or have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or over to be a candidate. You may also be a candidate if you have a BMI of 35 or over, coupled with at least one medical problem associated with obesity. This would include diabetes, sleep apnea or hypertension.
