The Body Mass Index (BMI) is an approximate measure of body fat based on your height and weight.
As a person’s BMI gets higher, there is an increased risk for diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, certain cancers, and many other illnesses.
If your BMI is in the Severe Obesity or Morbid Obesity categories, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.
Our surgeons will perform a thorough evaluation and determine your eligibility based on your other medical conditions and your prior weight loss attempts among other factors.
To calculate your BMI, enter your height and weight in the calculator below, and then click on “Calculate”.
|BMI||Classification||Level of Health Risk|
