Determining the Cost of Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Houston-area patients don’t have to put off gastric sleeve surgery because they are intimidated by the cost. Board certified general surgeon Dr. Matthew St. Laurent offers several affordable payment options, and insurance plans are also accepted.
Gastric sleeve surgery is quickly emerging as the go-to procedure for many top surgeons and may even be overtaking gastric bypass as the “gold standard” of weight loss surgery procedures. Also called gastric sleeve resection, sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, this procedure is a newer type of bariatric surgery.
The cost of gastric sleeve surgery is a main concern for many individuals aiming to undergo the surgery. Many people often ask…
How Much Does Gastric Sleeve Surgery Cost?
The exact cost is determined by a number of factors, including your recovery afterward. Typically, the price of gastric sleeve surgery is slightly more than gastric band surgery and considerably less than gastric bypass surgery. Dr. St. Laurent can give you an accurate estimate only after providing you with an initial consultation.
During that appointment, he’ll discuss payment and financing options to ensure your procedure is as affordable as possible. At Northwest EndoSurgical, we accept payment in the form of cash, check or major credit card. Financing options include CareCredit® and American Healthcare Lending®, which is the premier financing company in the bariatric surgery industry.
You may be surprised to find out that insurance covers all or part of the cost of gastric sleeve surgery. Please bring insurance information with you to your appointment so we can determine whether or not this might be the case for you.
