Dr. John DeBarros is board certified in general surgery. He is also a well-qualified bariatric surgeon at Banner Estrella Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
At present, bariatric surgery is Dr. DeBarros' specialty. Bariatric surgery is another name for weight loss surgery. It is performed on patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of about 35. This would indicate that they are roughly between seventy-five pounds and one hundred pounds overweight, or more.
For those with a BMI above 40, insurance coverage is fairly assured. For those whose BMI is between 35 and 40, many insurance companies will grant coverage if there are other medical difficulties along with the weight issue.
