Weight loss surgery has become increasingly common in recent years. Also referred to as bariatric surgery, these potentially life-saving procedures are all different, yet the ultimate goal of significant, safe weight loss is the same for all of them.

Some of the most common types of bariatric surgery include the following:

  • Gastric Bypass Surgery
  • Roux en-Y Gastric Bypass
  • Gastric Sleeve Surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy)
  • Gastric Banding Surgery
  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch

If you have had restrictive or malabsorptive weight loss surgery, medical ID jewelry is a daily necessity. Most bariatric surgery results in altered anatomy. In the event of an emergency, a person who has had gastric bypass surgery cannot be intubated via blind NG tube, which is the in-field standard for EMTs. They must use a lighted scope or run the risk of rupturing the patient’s stomach pouch. Further, in most cases, weight loss surgery patients cannot safely take NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Ibuprofen), and they must limit their intake of sugars due to the significant risk of dumping syndrome. Therefore, medical personnel must know from the first moment of treatment that their patient has undergone weight loss surgery.

What should I engrave on a weight loss surgery medical ID?

If you or someone you love has had gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, or other bariatric surgery, medical ID jewelry is a true necessity. We recommend listing your name, surgery type, any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers.

You can purchase multiple strands and continue using the same medical ID tag. If your personal information changes, you can simply replace the custom-engraved medical ID tag.
  • Non-interchangeable medical ids

    Non-interchangeable or traditional medical IDs have affixed medical ID tags for an all-in-one solution.
  • MEDICAL ID CUFFS

    Pull gently to open, put it on, and squeeze tighter for the right fit every time. Cuffs are an excellent option for people who experience swelling of the extremities, those with dexterity challenges, and those who have had weight loss surgery and are looking for the ultimate in adjustability.
  • MEDICAL ID necklaces

    While some people simply prefer medical ID necklaces to bracelets, others choose necklaces because they cannot wear bracelets in the workplace. In any case, EMTs and other first responders are trained to check neck and both wrists for the internationally recognized medical symbol.
