    BMI 31-32

    I just had my surgery done this way 10 days ago. I had to travel to dallas texas. I went through the Nicholson clinic. My bmi was 33.4 when I started. Since starting my preop diet I have now lost over 30lbs! They billed my insurance for the hernia repair and I paid out of pocket for the sleeve itself. How much you pay is largely based on your insurance. All total for the sleeve and hernia repair I came out of pocket about $5k. Is that the only place you found that would do it that way?

    Hi! I've just started thinking about getting a gastric sleeve. BMI is 31, 5'9 and 210. I'm in Arizona, anyone in the area, recommend a good dr? I have read on this post hat someone was able to get the insurance to pay for it while doing a hiatal hernia repair surgery. Anyone else able to have insurance cover it this way? Thanks
