  • Body mass index greater than or equal to 40?
  • 75 pounds overweight with a body mass index of 35-39.9?
  • Obesity-related health problems?
  • Tried unsuccessfully to lose weight through a well-balanced diet and exercise?
  • Age 18-65 years old?
  • Avoid nicotine and marijuana products?
  • Strong willingness to lead a life-long weight loss effort by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including diet and regular exercise?

If you answer yes to one or more of these criteria, please consider referring your patient to our program.
