What Will You Do After Surgical Weight Loss

Weight Loss Surgery Procedures
All of our weight loss surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques, which generally result in smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, fewer complications, and faster recovery times.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
In addition to these primary procedures, St. John’s offers multiple revision procedures for patients who have previously undergone bariatric surgery.
Am I A Candidate For Weight Loss Surgery
You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you’re severely obese, other weight loss treatments haven’t worked for you, and your Body Mass Index (BMI) is greater than 35 with other health problems or your BMI is greater than 40 without co-morbidities.
Calculate Your BMI
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of the degree of your excess weight, based on weight and height. BMI is calculated by dividing body weight in pounds by height in inches squared and multiplying that amount by 704.5. This provides a metric calculation for BMI.
Is Weight Loss Surgery Covered By My Insurance
Many health insurances cover weight loss surgery but each plan is different and may have different guidelines. To see if you are covered and qualify for surgery, please call our insurance coordinator at 805.981.7305 with your plan information.
