Sleeve Gastrectomy Cost
Sleeve gastrectomy cost varies, in part depending on your health insurance policy. Here at Dr. Feiz & Associates, a leading destination for sleeve gastrectomy surgery (also known as gastric sleeve), we invite you to contact us for a FREE consultation or a FREE informational seminar, where you can have the opportunity to ask medical professionals a variety of questions, including questions related to sleeve gastrectomy cost.
Also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, or VSG Surgery, this procedure involves removing 75%-85% of your stomach and then sculpting what remains into a sleeve-like structure. The narrower shaped stomach slows the intake of food particles, which allows you to more quickly achieve a feeling of satiety while eating less. The procedure also removes the part of the stomach that produces hormones responsible for making you hungry – one of many reasons some patients find this a more appealing alternative to the Lap Band surgery.
Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS is highly sought-after for sleeve gastrectomy surgery. He is one of a few select bariatric surgeons qualified to use the STARR Treatment, an advanced surgical method that allows him to perform micro sleeve surgery. Micro sleeve surgery is done with ONLY A SINGLE INCISION to the abdominal area, which means recovery is faster and less painful, and patients are left with little to no post-operative scarring.
