Moore Metabolics offers a wide range of services, from nutritional coaching to metabolic and bariatric surgery.
The first thing you need to do is learn if you’re a candidate for surgical treatment. If you are living with excessive weight or obesity, to the extent that your health is impaired, then you are likely a candidate for metabolic and bariatric surgery.
Some examples of chronic and progressive health conditions that are typically associated with weight are:
- Pre-diabetes & type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Sleep apnea
- Heart disease
- Infertility secondary to polycystic ovarian syndrome
These aren’t all the steps you need to take, but they are some of the most important steps to help you get started.
Step One: Find Out If You’re A Candidate For Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery
There are many different factors that affect a patient’s ability to qualify for surgery. In general, a patient is eligible for metabolic and bariatric surgery if:
- Health is impaired due to excessive weight
- Ready to commit to a healthy, active lifestyle
- No medical conditions that could cause serious complications during or after surgery
- Knowledgeable and understanding of the options, as well as its benefits and risks
- 18 years of age or older
Step Two: Schedule a Consultation
Step Three: Determine affordability
After you have met with your bariatric surgeon we’ll help you determine your affordability of surgical treatment. Bariatric and metabolic surgery is covered by 50% of health insurance plans and 90% of Medicare/Public/State plans (“Bariatric Reimbursement Fact Sheet” 2015).
