Am I a Candidate

Silver Lake NewStart is a weight-management program for the morbidly obese – those who are 100 pounds or more overweight – who have failed to sustain weight loss through diet and behavioral modification. This program is for people who want their life back; those who want to change, and are dedicated to their personal success.

Typically, patients wishing to undergo surgical weight loss must have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 points. However, no two people are alike, and we all have unique bodies and conditions. If you’re experiencing medical complications; such as, diabetes or high blood pressure, as a result of your obesity, we may be able to help. Patients who are suffering from co-morbid conditions associated with their obesity can often have surgery with a BMI of 35 or above.

Bariatric surgery is not for everyone. Those who believe that this is merely a cosmetic weight-loss procedure are wrong. Surgical weight loss is a life long journey of personal growth and opportunity. But failure to respect your body after surgery will result in little – if any – improvement. Silver Lake NewStart has many resources in place for your success after surgery.
