Are You a Candidate?

While bariatric surgery helps individuals with weight loss, it is important to understand that the procedure is not for everyone. You may qualify as a candidate for the Covenant Bariatric and Metabolic Center if you:

  • Are 18 years or older
  • Are 80 to 100 pounds over your ideal weight
  • Have a history of obesity, and non-surgical methods have failed
  • Have high-risk health problems (for example: diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure)
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40 or 35-39.9 with a co-morbid condition.*

We recommend that you attend one of our seminars to discuss what options are best for your individual situation. Our team will take into consideration the necessary factors, so we can best assist you as you consider having bariatric surgery.
