How do you qualify for bariatric surgery?

At the Nicholson Clinic, if going the self-pay route, our qualification is typically a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. If using insurance, our qualifications typically include:

  • A BMI between 30 and 39.9 with at least one serious obesity-related health issue such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, severe sleep apnea, hypertension, etc.
  • A history of obesity for at least five years.
  • Patients may also need a pre-surgical psychological evaluation and dietitian appointment.
