Weight loss surgery is just the start of a lifelong commitment to healthier living. At Easton Hospital, we take great pride in offering all of the pre- and post-operative education and support you need to help find lasting success:
According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), a weight loss procedure can significantly improve your health and free you to pursue an active and happy life.
Benefits of bariatric surgery may include:
All surgeries carry some risk. Your bariatric surgeon will review the potential complications and risks with you well before your surgery. Pneumonia, blood clots, infection, bleeding, leaking at staple lines, as well as ulcers, hernia and gallstones may occur, but are infrequent. Generally, the risks associated with weight loss surgery are significantly less than the risk of remaining morbidly obese.
The cost of a bariatric procedure depends on several factors, including the type of surgery you're having (gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or revisional) and length of hospital stay. Dr. Singhal is accredited by major insurance providers, though plans vary. If you're a candidate for a weight loss procedure, our Bariatric Surgery Program Coordinator and insurance specialist will work closely with you and your provider to help determine coverage, and submit all documentation for approval.
Patient results may vary. Consult your physician about the benefits and risks of any surgical procedure or treatment.
