I will be very happy if I find they would do this.


do you know what the criteria is for them to accept me? Is there something that specificaly would have them not qualify me? Any specific health problems that would be against me?

I'm sorry - The link included that contact information (it may not have worked for you) http://www.pennmedicine.org/wagform/MainPage.aspx?config=provider&P=PP&ID=9701

I don't know about their practice policies regarding this surgery. Your best option is to contact the office directly. I do know that obesity makes this approach more difficult.
Please let me know if I can of any further help.
