Dr. Brengman performs weight loss surgeries at his Richmond, VA location.
Bariatric surgeries like the gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and Lap Band are most often performed on adults with a BMI over 40, or with a BMI over 35 if they have an obesity-related health condition. These conditions can include sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis. In some cases, insurance will cover bariatric surgery. If you have questions about the procedures, whether you are a candidate, or the health risks of obesity – please get in touch.
