Who are Eligible Candidates for Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric Surgery; First of all, the treatment of obesity is diet and exercise. Weight loss with personal diet programs and exercise is the healthiest way. However we know that it is unfortunately not easy to lose weight and often the weight lost cannot be maintained.

In the studies conducted, only 4 out of 100 patients, who were treated with regular diet and exercise, were able to maintain the weight they lost at the end of the first year.

It is determined according to consensus decisions published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1991:

1-Obese patients with a body mass index > 40 kg/m2

2- Obese patients with a body mass index> 35 kg/m2 and with systemic diseases such as obesity-related diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, heart disease, polycystic disease
