Bariatric surgery is the best tool that medicine has to offer individuals who are severely overweight, but it is not for everyone. There are several requirements one has to meet to be a candidate for surgery:
There is not necessarily an upper age limit for weight loss surgery candidates. The risks and benefits of having an operation will need to be considered on an individual basis by your surgeon. The youngest patients to be considered for surgery are in their teens. Studies have shown that adolescents have excellent results after weight loss surgery. Careful consultation with our surgeons, a pediatrician, and perhaps other specialists, as well as the involvement of parents, is a definite requirement.
Our unique weight loss clinic offers a holistic and in-depth approach to weight loss. We have helped to improve the lives of thousands of patients through a combination of surgery, nutritional guidance, exercise programs, and psychological counseling. We help our patients not just lose the weight, but keep it off as well.
We want to answer all of your questions and we invite you to speak with one of our qualified bariatric doctors.
