Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for a Gastric Bypass Surgery. Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is a minimally invasive operation that reduces the stomach capacity to a very small volume and limits food intake, which helps a person to achieve complete and long-lasting weight loss.
The Gastric Bypass Surgery operation is performed, using the laparoscopic technique via 6 small incisions (1-2 cm. each) in the abdomen. Using stapling instruments, a new tiny stomach pouch is constructed to a volume of 15-30 ml. It is then connected directly to the small intestine, bypassing most of the stomach. Because the operation is a minimally invasive procedure, incision pain is usually minimal.
A Gastric Bypass Surgery cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, cost of drugs, and any related medical procedures required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
