How Much is Bariatric Surgery?

When discussing the costs involved with bariatric surgery, the process of determining this can be quite complex. This is because each individual’s personal medical history comes into play. This includes pre-existing conditions, as well as understanding at what degree of illness the patient is currently found in. All of these factors will help determine whether or not your health insurance can cover the procedure that you are looking into.

Sarasota Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most popular surgeries that Dr. Birkedal provides. This particular surgery involves reducing the size of the stomach in order to help the patient to both lose weight and keep the weight off in the future.
