If you are overweight or obese, you are not alone. More than two thirds of adults in the United States are overweight, and over one third are obese, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

People who areseverely obese (more than 100 pounds overweight) may be restricted in activities, face awkward social situations or even develop psychological disorders such as depression. Being overweight or obese also is a known risk factor for many diseases.

The Weight Loss Surgery Program,offered by Washington University bariatric surgeons at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, may be an option for severely obese patients who meet certain criteria. The program primarily treats adults from the St. Louis region and outlying areas. It is designated as an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.

I want to attend a seminar but, first, I need to know:Am I a candidate?
