If you are more than 100 pounds overweight and have tried and failed to lose weight, or if you suffer from obesity-related health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, joint disease, depression, high cholesterol or infertility, you may be a great candidate for metabolic weight loss or bariatric surgery at Atlantic Health’s Bariatric Surgery Program.

Find Out if You Qualify for Bariatric Surgery

1. Calculate BMI

Use the calculator to find your Body Mass Index (BMI). It uses weight and height to classify a person as underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese.

2. Ask Yourself These Questions

  • Do you have a BMI of 40 or more?
  • Do you have a BMI of 30 or more, plus a life-threatening obesity-related health problem such as diabetes, severe sleep apnea or heart disease?
  • Does your weight cause physical problems that interfere with family, recreational or work-related activities?
  • Are you more than 100 pounds overweight and have tried and failed to lose weight?

3. Reach Out

If the response is “yes” to any of the questions, please contact a Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center near you > 

If you answered "no," learn more about metabolic medical weight loss >

"You’ve got to be ready to do it because you do have to make changes. It’s not automatic. It doesn’t just happen. You have to eat differently. But it’s a great tool to help you not overeat."
