How much does a gastric bypass cost?
Listed below are estimates for some of the procedures we perform. These estimates cover the cost of the stay in hospital for the operation, i.e. the charges from the surgeon, anaesthetist and hospital itself. They do not cover the charges for consultations before or after surgery.
The cost of most weight loss procedures is FIXED and will not vary from patient to patient. Payment is made to Ascot Hospital before surgery.
Please note that revision operations and some other complex operations may not be covered by this fixed fee arrangement. If in doubt, please ask us.
Some insurers may contribute to the cost of surgery. Please check this with your insurance company. We are happy to write to your insurer on your behalf. Financial assistance is also available through Nova Medical Finance.
Below we show the costs for other procedures for comparison; these are estimates only. These rates are not fixed and will vary from patient to patient depending on time in hospital etc. The recent small increases in hospital charges reflect the rise in GST.
