Do I Qualify for Weight Loss Surgery?

While bariatric surgery is not a quick fix, it can be part of a plan to help you achieve significant weight loss, free you from related medical problems and jumpstart a healthier, more active lifestyle.

At our nationally recognized locations throughout Kentucky, we offer a variety of weight loss surgery options for life-changing results. And you’ll have the support of a dedicated team throughout your journey—from pre-operative education to long-term follow-up care.


You may be a candidate for weight loss surgery if you are:

  • Between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Obese with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or above
  • Struggling with an obesity-related condition like type 2 diabetes, joint pain, hypertension, heart disease or obstructive sleep apnea
  • Have tried or are currently trying to lose weight through other means such as diet and exercise
  • Psychologically ready for weight loss surgery and willing to commit to a whole new lifestyle
  • Not drug or alcohol dependent

If you don’t qualify for surgery, or prefer another option, we also offer non-surgical weight loss programs. A registered dietitian, exercise physiologist and other specialists will create a personalized plan and provide hands-on guidance to help you reach your goals.
