Is Weight Loss Solutions, Saint Francis Medical Center’s bariatric surgery center, the right solution for you?
“Bariatric surgery is by no means an ‘easy solution’ to a weight problem,” says Ryan A. LeGrand, MD, bariatric and general surgeon at Saint Francis. “You need to meet both physical and psychological criteria. It’s important to remember that bariatric surgery is not for everyone.”
You might be a good candidate for bariatric surgery if you:
- Have a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or greater.
- Have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise with little to no success.
- Have a serious weight-related health problem, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
- Are willing to make signi cant lifestyle changes in diet and exercise post-surgery.
