Who qualifies for a band over bypass procedure?

A weight loss surgeon will be able to tell you whether you qualify for this procedure or not after talking to you and examining you.

Band over bypass is performed when the patient has already had gastric bypass surgery and regained weight afterward. To qualify for the procedure, the patient must also meet the typical requirements for bariatric surgery:

  • BMI over 40
  • BMI over 35 and weight-related problems like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
