I went through Blossom Bariatrics in Las Vegas I paid $18,500 but my insurance covered ZERO. If your insurance covers out-of-network outpatient then you;'ll probably pay half of that. It was the most wonderful experience of my life. We got to spend 6 days in a nice hotel in vegas so it really was a vacation aside from surgery day and the day after...

I used Dr. Doucette with Alabama Surgical Associates. So far all my experiences had been pleasant. My procedure was yesterday. I had to pay cash and it 10,300. Thank heavens for loans

This is why researching ANY physician is important. I work in the medical field in the US and believe me, we all have doctors that we wouldn’t see due to their surgical outcomes.

However, this video is fear-mongering at best. 3 out of tens of thousands; that complication rate isn’t out of the norm for any surgery regardless of location. The two men also had Lap-Band procedures which are no longer performed anywhere that I’m aware of due to the complications. People in the US had the same issues. The woman had a terrible surgeon.

I'm having a tough time trying to pick a doc. I thought I'd be okay with going to Mexico but now I'm nervous.

Who was your in-state doc and how much did you pay? And if you went to Mexico, same question? I'm in south Florida! Thanks a bunch [emoji3059]

I went to Tijuana mexico. My surgery was on June 20th. I used MBC and they were all very nice and professional. The hospital was clean and they take very good care of you. I had bypass and I can give you a break down on what I paid. $5895 for the RNY, $390 for the companion, $395 for the hernia, and $395 for BMI 49+ = $7,075

I went to Mexico to have my gastric bypass done. Dr. Almanza was my doctor. The cost was $4999 but they gave you a $300 discount if you paid cash. I also had to pay for airfare to San Diego. I thought he was a great doctor and the staff was great and I stayed in the hospital the whole time.

Corpus Christi, TX from first appointment to the full year with hospital stay around 12,000. I refused insurance because they tell you what rules to follow.

Doesn’t look like Renew Bariatrics does the mini gastric bypass. If any of you had this procedure in Mexico, where did you go?

I had VSG, but I know my surgeon does the MGB. I used Dr. Illan at HsopitalBC and HIGHLY recommend him. He works very closely with Dr. Rutledge, who championed and perfected the MGB, and has performed them for years.

I had surgery in Tijuana, Mx and it was $3,800 Dec 202. Super clean and great and safe experience. Look up "Obesity not 4 me" in Tijuana, Mexico. I lost 30 lbs first month and another 30 since. My goal is to lose 20 more.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
