Weight Loss Surgery Seminar

weight loss surgery seminar

Weight loss surgery can have long-lasting benefits for your health. Our online seminar below will show you the surgical and non-surgical options you have for your weight loss goals.

  • Who Qualifies for Weight Loss Surgery?

    To be eligible for weight loss surgery, you must be at least 18 years old and meet one of these two requirements:

    • BMI (body mass index) of 35 with other conditions (comorbidities), such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or arthritis


    • BMI of 40 or more without comorbidities

    You also need to be able to walk the length of a hallway or about 50 yards. This helps ensure you are healthy enough to handle weight loss surgery and the recovery process. And remember: Weight loss surgery alone isn’t enough. You also need to make a lifelong commitment to yourself to follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise.
