Bariatric Surgeon Fees:

Cost vs. Expertise

When choosing a bariatric surgeon, it is important for prospective patients to take into account the doctor's level of skill and experience. The fee paid to the bariatric surgeon is one of the primary cost factors, yet your decision should not be based on cost alone.

The bariatric surgeon you choose will affect more than your budget, it is one of the key factors determining successful results. In most cases, you will pay more for a highly qualified bariatric surgeon, however, you can also expect better surgical outcomes and lower complication rates.

One of the questions to ask your bariatric surgeon is 'How many of my type of weight loss surgery (gastric band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass) have you performed?' An experienced bariatric surgeon should have done at least 250 of your specific procedure.
