Home » What Does the Surgery Cost?
We request an all inclusive “turn-key” fee for each of the laparoscopic surgery procedures we offer. We take care of everything for you in order to prepare you for safe surgery. This “turn-key” fee includes:
Our prices vary from $12,000 (e.g. removing failed “Lap band”) to $23,000 ( e.g. revision surgery) depending on the type of surgery and the complexity of the case.
|Laparoscopic Removal of Failed Lap Band (no hospital stay)||$12,000|
|Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (1 days hospital stay)||$17,500|
|Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (2 days in hospital)||$20,500|
|Revisional Surgery (e.g. remove lap band and gastric bypass, 2 days in hospital)||$23,000|
As these are medically indicated procedures there is no tax added to the price. You will be provided with a detailed receipt. You must consult with your tax adviser as to the proper use of this receipt.
In order to get the health benefits of weight loss you must follow a diet regimen and exercise program for the rest of your life. In the analysis presented here we calculate the cost of some diet programs followed consecutively for 20 years, assuming you could follow this diet without failure. We do not consider health club membership fees, personal trainer fees and other costs related to the exercise component of your behavioural modification program.

Even the most scientifically proven diet plan, Weight Watchers, costs more than the surgery.
