Am I A Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
Weight loss surgery is not the right solution for everyone in Penrith. Dr. V. Kuzinkovas evaluates a candidate’s physical and psychological condition when deciding whether weight loss surgery is a good option.
Before starting treatment the Advanced Surgicare team will conduct a thorough medical evaluation including:
- A complete history and physical examination noting down your height, weight and BMI
- Labs tests to evaluate liver and renal function, lipid profile, blood constituent levels and H pylori
- Radiology studies such as a chest X-ray and ultrasound of liver and gallbladder
- An EKG to evaluate your heart
- Gastrointestinal tests for specific conditions
- Physical and psychological tests to evaluate your fitness level, mental state and motivation
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement of body fat that is used to help determine whether an individual is overweight. The number is calculated based on height and weight.
