There are several types of weight loss or bariatric surgery. We offer three procedures. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable lap banding. Upon a comprehensive evaluation, our surgeons will recommend the best surgery for you.
You may be a candidate for weight loss surgery if:
You are more than 100 pounds over your ideal body weight
You have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 of more
Your BMI is between 35–40 with comorbidities, such as:
Type 2 diabetes
high blood pressure
osteoarthritis or other physical conditions related to obesity
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women. You can find your BMI using the following formula: [Weight in pounds/(Height in inches2] x 704.
Our healthcare team will calculate your BMI and make a plan to improve your health and quality of life with surgical treatment and nutrition education. At WHS, we understand people dealing with morbid obesity.
