Weightloss

Akkary Surgery Center offers both weight loss surgery and non-surgical weight loss options.

Bariatric surgery might be considered for patients with Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 kg/m2 and above with obesity related disorders (e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc) or 40 kg/m2 and above with or without obesity related disorders. In 2011, the FDA approved the use of the Lap band device for lower BMI.
