Pricing for Dr. Jorge Green’s Bariatric Procedures

Bariatric treatments can do and have done wonders for people struggling with severe obesity. These procedures have helped thousands of patients defeat obesity-related problems and reach their weight loss transformation goals. Successful bariatric procedures result in 60 to 70 percent loss of excess body weight in a matter of months. 

Furthermore, since modern medical technologies and methods are used in bariatric treatments, these procedures are exceptionally safe and rarely cause complications. (Especially if done in a state-of-the-art medical facility like CER Hospital by an experienced, board-certified bariatric surgeon like Dr. Jorge Green. )

In terms of cost, bariatric treatments can range from exceptionally affordable to extremely expensive, depending on various factors. In the United States, bariatric treatments typically cost tens of thousands of dollars, so most patients prefer having their procedure done in countries like Mexico. Mexico has modern facilities based on American Hospital Standards and some of the most skilled, professional bariatric surgeons, like Dr. Jorge Green.

The cost of medical procedures is generally very affordable in Mexico compared to the United States despite having almost the same care and facilities, one of the primary reasons why the country has become a center of medical tourism, hosting patients from all over the world.

So, how much does a bariatric surgery done by Dr. Jorge Green in CER Hospital Tijuana, Mexico, cost? Let’s discuss the total costs of different bariatric procedures and what these costs cover.

Pricing of Bariatric Procedures

First, let’s understand how pricing works in bariatric procedures. Most medical facilities offer complete packages covering the surgery itself, preoperative tests, hospital stays, anesthesia, immediate postoperative care, and medications. In contrast, others offer separate costs for each step of the procedure. 

In addition, it is important to know that there are a lot of factors that can influence the total cost of a bariatric procedure, such as the surgeon and facility you choose, hotel accommodation (if you opt for treatment in a different country or region), transportation, preoperative tests and assessment, and postoperative care. 

Suppose you’re considering choosing Dr. Jorge Green for your treatment. In that case, you can expect a flexible, affordable, budget-friendly package covering everything from your hotel stay to the entire procedure and transportation. Also, know that you will be treated and cared for by the most professional hands in a comfortable, state-of-the-art medical facility before, during, and after the treatment.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery involves cutting the stomach with small incisions until a banana-shaped pouch is left. It is done laparoscopically and cuts around 80 percent of the original stomach volume. In the United States of America, where healthcare is generally very expensive, a gastric sleeve bariatric surgery can start from $19,000 and cost as much as $50,000, depending on the state, hospital, and surgeon. Furthermore, you’re also expected to pay out-of-pocket costs before and after the procedure. 

In contrast, Dr. Jorge Green offers a very reasonable, budget-friendly package for gastric sleeve surgery. This package covers preoperative assessment tests, hospital bills, as well as a variety of other expenses. It is roughly priced at $4,399, but this value can change based on your demands, needs, and other factors. 

Your procedure will be done in CER Bariatric Medical Facility, a state-of-the-art hospital based on American Hospital Standards, located in the heart of Mexico’s business district, Tijuana. You’ll have the most skilled medical staff around you to give you care 24/7 and a patient coordinator to guide you through each step of the procedure. Dr. Jorge Green will supervise all aspects of your treatment during your stay at the facility and perform the actual surgery.

Gastric Balloon Procedure

The gastric balloon procedure is a highly successful, non-surgical bariatric procedure that involves reducing the stomach’s capacity by filling it with carefully positioned medical implants (silicon balloons). This procedure is safe, reversible, and has helped severely obese patients lose up to 70 percent of their excess body fat in just 6 months.

In the United States, a gastric balloon procedure can generally cost over $9,000. However, Dr. Jorge Green offers an all-inclusive gastric balloon treatment package starting at just $3,699. This is a general value, and since gastric balloon treatment has varieties based on the type of balloon used, their prices also vary.

#1. Obalon Balloon System

One of the best bariatric treatments for people who do not want to go through surgery, the Obalon balloon system is an FDA-approved procedure that involves swallowing silicon balloons and filling them up with saline water using a catheter to naturally reduce the stomach’s volume. In the United States, the Obalon gastric balloon procedure can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $9,000, averaging around $7,500. Dr. Jorge Green, however, offers a much more affordable treatment.

#2. Spatz Adjustable Balloon System

The Spatz balloon is an innovative gastric balloon system as its size can be adjusted according to the patient’s condition. This treatment can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $7,000 in the United States, but you can contact Dr. Jorge Green for a reasonably priced treatment.

#3. Orbera Balloon System

Receiving approval from the FDA in August 2015, the Orbera Balloon System involves placing the balloon endoscopically in the stomach and then filling it up with 300 to 750 ml of saline water. The balloon can be removed after 6 to 12 months after achieving the weight loss target. In the United States, the average Orbera balloon treatment costs $6,000. However, you can get a much more affordable price from Dr. Jorge Green’s team.

#4. Reshape Duo Balloon System

The Reshape Duo balloon system uses two separate gastric balloons connected through a shaft. The treatment received FDA approval in July 2016, and since it is a relatively new treatment, many health insurance companies don’t cover it.

Which Factors Influence the Cost of a Bariatric Procedure?

Here are some factors that can influence the total cost of a bariatric treatment:

Country and Region

The cost of a bariatric procedure can vary greatly depending on country, state, and region. As discussed earlier, bariatric weight loss treatments are very expensive in the United States compared to countries like Mexico, which offer almost the same healthcare quality and facilities.

Medical Facility

The medical facility or hospital you choose for your bariatric procedure will majorly impact the total treatment cost, as some facilities are upscale and more expensive than others.

The Bariatric Surgeon

A good portion of your treatment cost will go to the surgeon, and different surgeons price their services differently based on their skills and experience.

Type of Bariatric Procedure

Treatment costs primarily vary depending on the type of bariatric treatment or surgery suitable for a patient. Some bariatric procedures cost much more than others due to their complexity, use of medical technology, and other factors.
