Sleeve gastrectomy : Generally speaking, yes. Whether it is atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, etc., even if you are on Coumadin, (warfarin) you can usually undergo a weight loss operation. You would need to have a full cardiac workup and clearance from your cardiologist, but after that there shouldn't be any barriers to having surgery.
