While each surgery candidate is considered individually, the following are general guidelines for qualification:
All patients in our program undergo an independent psychological evaluation by our psychologists/psychiatrists where these issues are discussed and a recommendation made regarding surgery. Ultimately, the decision regarding eligibility for surgery is made by your surgeon.
Your personal medical history is evaluated and discussed individually with you at your surgical consultation.
Specific disease states are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
