Calculate your BMI
To qualify, your Body Mass Index (BMI) should be 40 or greater. If your BMI is between 35-40, then you must have at least one significant co-morbidity (serious medical problem). Individuals with a BMI of 30-35 with at least one significant co-morbidity qualify for the LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System. Those with BMI of 30-40 qualify for the intragastric balloon.
