Millions of Americans fall into morbidly obese category due to our dietary and increasingly sedentary life style. Morbidly obese means, somebody over 100 Lbs of their ideal weight or calculated BMI( Body Mass Index) of 40 and over.  Patients with BMI of over 35 who are suffering from co-morbidities such as Type II Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension and Arthritis can be considered for one of the Bariatric procedures as well.

According to American Society of Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), Bariatric surgery is known to be the most effective and long lasting treatment for morbid obesity and many related conditions, but now mounting evidence suggests it may be among the most effective treatments for metabolic diseases and conditions including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnea.
