It usually depends on some combination of the surgeon, clinic, and your insurace. A lot of surgeons won't operate on someone is much older because they have concerns whether the patients heart and lungs will be okay during/after the surgery. Anyone who wants the surgery should call their clinic and see if the surgeon has some limitations, and should also double check with their insurance to see what is covered.
