Yes, you can opt for slim band surgery. The surgery is especially designed for severely obese people whose BMI is greater than 40 and patient with complications like sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis or high blood pressure. Similarly, hypothyroidism is also one of the consequences of obesity. You can go for slim band surgery even if you are suffering with hypothyroid. Many people have noticed marked improvement in their hypothyroid problem after surgery.
If you want to have your surgery at Calgary, then it not a bad option but there are certain criteria that you need to fulfill for the surgery. You must meet criteria for BMI, referral by your family doctor, and finally clinic acceptance. Beside that you need to undergo a weight management program before lap band surgery done. You must know that Calgary clinic is limited to ding 25 bands per year.
