Bariatric Surgery Scale

Are You a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

“Our typical patient is someone who has been struggling with their weight and has tried lots of diet plans over the years, losing weight but usually gaining it back,” says Dr. Sergio Bardaro, MD and Director of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery at MetroHealth.

To qualify, patients must have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or more; if you have other health problems related to weight loss, your BMI can be as low as 35 to qualify.
