Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You? Bariatric Surgery Isn’t For Everyone At Highland Hospital’s Bariatric Surgery Center, we require patients to meet strict physical and psychological criteria before becoming candidates for our weight loss program. If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40, or 35 or more and experiencing obesityrelated health conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, or degenerative joint disease, you may be eligible for surgery. Every qualified patient is carefully evaluated with medical, psychological, nutritional, and physical therapy screenings. Candidates must also be confident they can follow the dietary, exercise, and behavioral recommendations following surgery.
