Our Team at KC Bariatric is Highly Skilled and Can Help You Achieve Your Goals After Weight Loss Surgery
Am I a Weight Loss Candidate?
Each person’s candidacy is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, depending on your physical health and other factors. You may qualify for surgery even if some of these criteria below are not met. If you want the most effective way to lose weight long-term, then a bariatric surgery such as the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or a gastric sleeve may be for you. If you have undergone previous weight-loss surgery and have developed complications or weight regains, then revisional surgery may be for you. Our medical team at KC Bariatric is highly experienced with primary and revisional bariatric surgery. Our surgeons can determine which bariatric procedure is right for you during an initial consultation. We have the skills and experience you can trust!
