Need Usa Sleeve Surgeon Advice Asap... in Gastric Sleeve Surgery Forums Posted July 3, 2012 Had self pay Sand Antonio 2 years ago for 14,500 for doctor, hospital and one year follow up. Pysch assessment was I think $120. Then I had to have cardio clearance due to swelling in leg that cost an additional $1500. Most people won't need the cardio clearance. My surgeon is excellent. However as others have said, there are those who charge less who are also good. I imagine you will find costs lower in southeast or south than in northeast where cost of living is generally higher. However I've never done a regional comparison.
