Gastric Sleeve Cost

Gastric sleeve is an effective weight loss surgery but many wonder if it's worth the cost. Northwest EndoSurgical offers flexible financing plans to help keep gastric sleeve costs low so patients don't break the bank.

See how Dr. Matthew St. Laurent in Houston, TX, can help you achieve your weight loss goals with gastric sleeve surgery.

Affordable Monthly Payments

Surgery can get expensive, which is why we offer financing. Thanks to our payment plans, the cost of gastric sleeve surgery is as low as $335 per month.

The exact cost of gastric sleeve surgery is determined by a number of factors, including your recovery after your procedure. Since the cost is unique to each patient, Dr. St. Laurent can give you an accurate estimate during an initial consultation.

Cost of Gastric Sleeve vs.
Other Bariatric Surgeries


Typically, the price of gastric sleeve surgery is slightly more than gastric band surgery. The procedure also costs considerably less than gastric bypass surgery. Keep in mind that regardless of price, certain bariatric surgery procedures may be better suited to your health and weight loss goals.

Payment and Financing Options

Texas patients don’t have to put off surgery because they are intimidated by the cost. Board-certified general surgeon Dr. St. Laurent offers several affordable payment options. Insurance is also accepted for bariatric surgery.

Payment Methods

At Northwest EndoSurgical in Houston, TX, we accept payment in the form of cash, check, and major credit cards. 


Financing options include CareCredit® and American Healthcare Lending, the latter of which is a leading financing company in the bariatric surgery industry. We can work out the right option for you during your visit.


You may be surprised to find out that insurance may cover part or all of the cost of a weight loss surgery procedure. Please bring insurance information with you to your appointment in Houston so we can review your eligibility.

I visited Dr. St. Laurent to go over issues I have that have developed over time. The office is beautiful and the staff that I worked with were wonderful. Dr. St. Laurent sat down and listened to my issues. He did not give me the impression he had any other patients- I was the number one and only focus during my visit. He explained my issues as well as did a really good drawing to make sure I understood. Highly impressed.

Why Choose Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Gastric sleeve surgery is quickly emerging as the go-to procedure for many top surgeons. It may even overtake gastric bypass as the “gold standard” of weight loss surgery procedures.

The stomach is reduced in size to prevent overeating by feeling full faster. This surgery is also called gastric sleeve resection, sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy, and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

The Benefits of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

If you want to lose a significant amount of weight, there are several bariatric surgery options you can choose from at our Houston bariatric surgery office; however, gastric sleeve procedures are popular due to their efficacy and longevity. This weight loss surgery can benefit your quality of life in a variety of ways:
With the help of flexible financing, losing weight and regaining confidence can be achieved by every patient.

Lose Weight

Gastric sleeve surgery helps patients lose around 60-70 percent of their excess weight within the first year. Some of our Texas-area patients report losing even more. 

Improve Your Health

Obesity can lead to health issues like Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea. Significant weight loss through a gastric sleeve can prevent conditions from forming and improve any obesity-related health conditions you already have. Some patients have even reported a significant reduction in Type 2 diabetes symptoms just one year after surgery.

Enhance Your Well-Being

Through significant weight loss, your health, appearance, and confidence can all improve. Following gastric sleeve surgery, patients often experience a significant boost in their self-esteem and are ready to step out into the world with pride.

The Cost of
Non-Surgical Treatment
As a Supplement, Alternative, or Preparatory Treatment for Gastric Sleeve

Alongside our many surgical solutions, our Houston office offers nutritional counseling that involves taking prescription medication that can curb your appetite and addictive behavior while your counselor helps you adopt a sustainable and healthy diet. Counseling costs $900, which includes the initial consultation and six months of counseling. Medications can range from $150 to $1,600 per month, depending on your needs. Insurance can contribute to the cost of nutrition counseling, but medications aren't always covered. In many cases, our practice can compound drugs to make anything your provider won't cover much more affordable.

Losing weight is 90% psychological. Patients have to be able to commit to a healthier lifestyle, and this combination of weight loss counseling and meds can teach you how to make the change in a way that doesn't feel like a daily struggle.

If you are considering gastric sleeve or other bariatric surgery, you may be wondering: Why would I consider an additional nonsurgical treatment regimen? We invite you to explore a few reasons why investing in this additional line of care could benefit you:
