Weight-Loss Surgery

With obesity becoming an epidemic nationwide and in Arkansas, more people are looking to surgery for help with obesity problems. NEA Baptist Clinic offers a number of bariatric or weight-loss options, including Lap-Band®, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery, as well as other bariatric surgery options.

Am I a candidate for weight-loss surgery?

To be a candidate for weight-loss or bariatric surgery, a patient must have a Body Mass Index (BMI) in the overweight or obese range. BMI is the height-to-weight ratio of an individual and is determined by a mathematical formula. A BMI of 25-29.9 indicates an individual is overweight. A BMI of 30 or greater indicates an individual is obese.

How do I learn more about my surgical weight-loss options?
If your BMI is 25 or higher, Dr. Jones at NEA Baptist Clinic encourages you to attend a free education seminar hosted at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital. Reservations are not required. For more information, please call 870-936-8000.
