The field of weight-loss surgery* is one of constant advances and innovation. Many weight-loss procedures (also called bariatric surgery) are even performed laparoscopically, which means less time in the operating room, reduced pain, a shorter hospital stay, less risks from surgery and a faster recovery.

The comprehensive weight-loss surgery program offered by SSM Health Weight Management Services has the ultimate goal of helping people live healthier, longer lives. That's why we address all of your weight management needs leading up to and following surgery.

Who Qualifies for Weight Loss Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a procedure for people who are considered severely overweight. Candidates generally have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40. In some cases, a patient with a BMI of 35 who has a life-threatening or disabling health condition, that could improve due to weight loss, might qualify.
