Who's a Candidate For Surgery?

Many people struggle with obesity.  Excess body fat can lead to a number of health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, back pain, chronic acid reflux, cancer and many other conditions. If any of these are an issue for you, there's help available at Black Hills Surgical Hospital.

Your body mass index (BMI) score is also an accurate way to determine if bariatric surgery is a suitable option for you. A BMI of 35 or above meets the World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health's definition of obesity and may qualify you for surgery. Go to this link for a BMI calculator.
