Typically surgery is: recommended for patients with morbid obesity (BMI>40), patients who are obese (BMI > 35) with other medical conditions like diabetes or heart disease, and now many people are also recommending surgery for those with BMI > 30 (overweight) with other high risk med problems. There are many options for weight loss surgery (bypass, sleeve, band); see a good bariatric surgeon to discuss. Good luck!
