Gastric Sleeve Cost

Gastric sleeve surgery can be an effective way for morbidly obese patients to lose hundreds of pounds and improve their health and life.

However, gastric sleeve costs in the United States can be high. Fortunately, there is a more affordable option available.

A Gastric Sleeve costs $4,500 at our Tijuana, Mexico, practice. Learn more about what this price includes and our payment options.

Are You Eligible for Gastric Sleeve?

The only way to know if you are a good candidate for gastric sleeve is to speak with a qualified surgeon. Call us at (619) 629-0222 or contact us online to ask a question or inquire about setting up an appointment:

The Cost of Surgery in the United States

  • Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as VSG (vertical sleeve gastrectomy) is a type of bariatric surgery that can cost over $20,000 in the United States.
  • This cost typically does not include lodging for a companion, various hospital fees, anesthesia, and post-surgical follow-up care, which can result in additional unexpected costs.
  • The price of the gastric sleeve procedure is far less costly at our practice. Our patients receive superior care, and they can benefit from a longer lifespan and a reduction in symptoms caused by obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and sleep apnea. 

The Cost of Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

  • Our expert bariatric surgeons perform advanced laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery at a state-of-the-art surgical facility in beautiful, tourist-friendly Tijuana, Baja California for approximately $4,500. This includes many extra services.
  • Our bariatric practice is considered to be the best in Mexico. We may recommend a gastric sleeve procedure for severely obese patients over a gastric bypass because it is less invasive, can have better results, features less risk of complications, and is more cost-effective for patients on a budget.

What Is Included in the Price of My Surgery?

I had my appointment with Dr Verboonen in June 12  after he explain and answer my questions I know I was in the right place. Had my surgery June 13. The staff was very caring and helpful. My nurses Veronica and Luis did so much to help me with my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Verboonen for anybody considering gastric sleeve.
