GASTRIC SLEEVE SELF PAY $11,500 CASH PRICE (COST MAY INCREASE DEPENDING ON LENDER)
With the increasing recognition of obesity as a progressive disease and recent understanding of the dramatic benefits that metabolic surgery can have on obesity-related health problems, insurance companies are increasingly willing to cover metabolic surgery for many patients. Unfortunately, however, some patients who qualify for weight loss surgery may not have insurance coverage or have a deductible that is simply too high, or for some patients, wading through the lengthy approval process may simply be too much. For individuals who cannot or choose not to have their weight loss surgery covered by insurance, The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery in Altamonte Springs, Florida is pleased to offer a self pay program for patients who qualify for outpatient gastric sleeve surgery. This gastric sleeve self pay option enables you to enjoy the same high standard of surgical care at an affordable price.
WHY CHOOSE GASTRIC SLEEVE SURGERY?
Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as a “sleeve gastrectomy”, is one of the most effective forms of weight loss surgery available today. This amazing weight loss procedure involves removing about 70% of the stomach to severely restrict food intake. The remaining portion of the stomach, a vertical, banana-shaped “sleeve” between the esophagus and small intestine, can hold about 10% of what the original stomach could hold. For most patients, the surgery can be completed in 1-2 hours under general anesthesia, and is completed utilizing advanced laparoscopic techniques requiring only small key hole size incisions and greatly decreasing the risk of serious complications and side effects. In fact, this advanced procedure is now considered as safe as most other forms of surgery available today!
Self pay gastric sleeve surgery offers two incredible benefits to patients who are seriously overweight and suffer from weight-related health concerns. First, the sleeve gastrectomy enables significant and rapid weight loss by reducing the amount of food the patient can eat and the amount of food the patient wants to eat. Second, gastric sleeve surgery is a metabolic procedure that re-adjusts your metabolism allowing you to lose weight very quickly.* These metabolic changes and hormone release caused by the sleeve stops type two diabetes within days of the surgery!** The sleeve gastrectomy has been shown to be an extremely effective treatment option for all obesity-related health problems.
For patients seeking a safe, effective way to lose weight and regain their health, the self pay sleeve gastrectomy with Dr. Beltre offers a powerful, affordable option.*
WHAT DOES OUTPATIENT GASTRIC SLEEVE COST?
Our gastric sleeve self pay program is optimal for individuals who do not have insurance coverage or choose not to utilize their insurance to cover their weight loss surgery. The self pay option is only available for patients who qualify for outpatient surgery. Patients who require an extended hospital stay before and/or after will not qualify for this specific self pay program, and should discuss other financial options with Dr. Beltre’s helpful staff.
For most patients, the fee for outpatient gastric sleeve surgery will be $11,500.00 cash price (cost may increase depending on lender), although the specific cost for each patient may vary somewhat depending on the specific medical concerns for each patient. At your preliminary consultation, Dr. Beltre and his staff will provide you with a detailed cost estimate to ensure that you fully understand your fee and what it includes.
The base fee includes the cost for the anesthesia, the cost of the surgery center and the surgery itself. It also includes all necessary follow up visits with Dr. Beltre after surgery, as well as participation in Dr. Beltre’s regular and on-going weight loss support meetings.
Disclaimer: The fee does not include prescription medications and lab work, and does not cover any overnight hospitalizations that may be required before and/or after the surgery.
