“I got my life back”

It has drastically improved both my health and my quality of life. I ran two 5K’s last year, took my grandkids to a water park, and I went skiing for the first time this winter.

Am I a candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

In general, the criteria for weight loss surgery is based on both your age, Body Mass Index (BMI), and your health conditions that are caused or worsened by obesity. We are able to accept most insurances at PeaceHealth Bariatrics, and it is your insurance that will determine the criteria.

Here’s three things you can do now to help determine if bariatric surgery is right for you:

  • Calculate your BMI
  • Research payment options and your insurance requirements
  • Watch or attend one of our free bariatric informational sessions
