Chicago Weight Loss Surgeons Discuss Candidates for Bariatric Surgery

Chicago weight loss surgeons discuss bariatric surgery candidacy.

The Chicago bariatric surgeons of Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center want patients interested in weight loss surgery to be aware of these important facts.

Chicago, IL – According to the Chicago bariatric surgeons of Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center, the decision to undergo bariatric surgery can be a life-changing one. As they tell all of their prospective bariatric surgery patients, the procedure is designed to not only help them lose significant amounts of weight, but also to help change their lifestyle and reduce serious general health risks. In order to officially determine one’s candidacy for bariatric surgery, individuals must be evaluated during a consultation; however, the physicians of SSCS say there are certain factors patients should know that can help them understand some of the candidacy requirements for many types of bariatric procedures:

Overall, the surgeons reiterate that determining one’s candidacy for weight loss surgery must be done in an in-person consultation where the patient’s needs, goals, and medical history can be evaluated. With that in mind, they note, individuals who are considering bariatric surgery should know that they’ve already made what could be a very important step on a journey to better health and improved self-esteem.
