LAP-BAND surgery and gastric sleeve surgery are regarded as affordable weight-loss surgery options (they also have a lower risk of mortality and side effects than gastric bypass surgery).

How much does weight-loss surgery cost?

The cost of LAP-BAND surgery or gastric sleeve surgery depends in part on your individual needs. Your specific medical history and health conditions may affect the cost of your procedure. After your consultation with our bariatric surgeon, we will be able to personalize a care program for you and estimate your costs.

Our base costs for surgery are:

  • LAP-BAND: $13,900 or $14,400 with hiatal hernia repair*
  • Gastric sleeve: $16,500

*Hiatal hernia repair is $500 and necessity can only be determined during surgery on a case-by-case basis.

The above figures are the current costs for bariatric surgery at Malley Surgical Weight Loss Center. If you see different prices for our services listed elsewhere by our competitors, they are wrong!

What do I get for this price?

Our surgery costs cover the surgery center, your anesthesiologist, and your surgeon’s fee. It also includes:

  • Pre-op appointments.
  • LAP-BAND fills for one year. Patients who undergo LAP-BAND surgery will are covered for routine fills and follow-up visits for one year following surgery.

Does insurance cover weight-loss surgery?
