The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You
Is Bariatric Surgery Right for Me?
Weight loss surgery is a deeply personal, life-changing decision - but you're not alone. We can provide you with the professional support you need to take back your life. It is important to have the answers to these questions as you explore surgical weight loss options.
- What is my BMI (Body Mass Index) and does it qualify me for surgery?
- Does my current weight cause any other chronic health conditions?
- Can I commit to documented weight loss efforts required by my insurance plan?
- Am I willing to re-evaluate my diet and exercise regimen to live a healthier life?

Insurance might seem daunting, especially if you aren't sure what your provider will cover. To assist you through this process, St. John has an authorization specialist who will help you determine your insurance provider's requirements and submit you for coverage after you have met the criteria.
