Gastric Bypass Cost
One of the biggest worries bariatric patients share with board-certified general surgeon Matthew St. Laurent is their concern about cost.
The good news is that weight loss surgery is not out of reach financially for most people.
Learn about the cost of gastric bypass surgery at Northwest EndoSurgical in Houston, TX, and how we can help you achieve a healthier life.
How Much Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Cost?
Since no two patients are exactly alike, the total cost of bariatric surgery is unique to each individual's specific case. The average cost of gastric bypass surgery in the United States is between $20,000 and $25,000. However, the only true way to get an accurate estimate for the cost of your weight loss surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. St. Laurent. During your consultation, Dr. St. Laurent will review your health and weight loss goals and determine your exact gastric bypass treatment cost.
How Can I Afford Bariatric Surgery?
With or Without Insurance
Our patients are often surprised to learn that insurance companies frequently cover some or all of the cost of bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass. We will file all the necessary paperwork with your insurance provider to help ensure you receive as much coverage as possible.
Our Houston, TX, office also offers self-pay pricing to our patients without insurance or with high deductibles. With our self-pay pricing, a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure can be as low as $683 per month at Northwest EndoSurgical.
Even insurance coverage that does include weight loss surgery may not cover every part of treatment. To help patients afford this life-changing procedure, our Texas practice works with several vendors that provide financing, including:
- COSMETIC CREDIT
- American Healthcare Lending™

"Dr. St. Laurent is the best doctor ever! In fact, he saved my life. He performed emergency surgery on me in Dec. 2014 and a 10 hr. gastric bypass revision in February 2015. He visited my hospital room every day and stayed as long as I needed. He was so encouraging even when other doctor's thought I would not make it. We have bonded in such a way that I believe will last forever. Thank you Dr. St. Laurent and staff for saving my life, literally!" Toni Harris, 5-Star Review
