BMI Calculator

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It is the measure that insurance companies and other institutions use to help determine who qualifies for bariatric surgery, or for a non-surgical procedure like the Orbera or ReShape balloon. The way BMI is calculated is by taking your height in meters, and dividing it by the square of your weight in kilograms. Even though BMI alone can’t be used to decide if you should have bariatric surgery, it is an important starting point and guideline. In addition to BMI, we will evaluate your medical history and obesity related health conditions or diseases.

Since most people in the US are much more comfortable using feet, inches, and pounds, our BMI calculator will let you input those values instead. The BMI measurements are only applicable to adults. If you are wondering about the BMI surgery qualifications for an adolescent, please contact the office because this is a more complex evaluation.

It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"

"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."

"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
