Patient Characteristics - Gastric Bypass Surgery

Ideal patients will be at least 100 pounds overweight, are 15-65 years old and have failed at least 6 diet attempts. They should also understand the risks of the surgery and be ready to alter their lifestyles post-operatively. Physicians will usually screen their patients by computing the relationship between their height and weight.

This is placed against a scale known as a BMI (Body Mass Index). Those patients who are candidates for surgery need to have a BMI of at least 40. However, there are cases where the patient has suffered a life-threatening illness (such as a cardio-pulmonary incident) and are allowed the surgical procedure if they have a BMI of 35 or above.

Since medical issues can be extensive and the surgery, itself, has risks associated with it, potential surgery candidates must undergo counseling and be screened thoroughly prior to the surgical procedure.
