I finally have my surgery scheduled!! I am going to Michigan and having surgery with Dr. Mark Pleatman. I am so excited but also nervous!! Has anyone gone to him? Just curious of others experiences.

Also, as far as after surgery for self-payers, did you have any issues receiving follow up care? If I have any issues will I get turned away from other doctors? I have an appointment with my PCP and I'm going to make sure he's okay with it, I just am worried that no one will help me.

I'm so ready for this but I also feel like I'm not prepared!

Any other advice anyone could offer would be great!!

Hello. Can I ask what the cost is for cash pay. I live in Indiana and Michigan would be a lot closer than Mexico if the price is reasonable
Thank you

Maybe if its cash its cheaper, i dont know. This?was the price when covered by insurance. The doctor you go to is extremely important. hf is a center of excellence. They have higher standards.

Dr Mark Pleatman is in Bloomfield Hills, MI and it's 11,200 for the vertical Sleeve. Not as cheap as Mexico, but not as much as doing it at a normal hospital with no insurance. It's definitely doable!!
