Best Bariatric Surgical Procedures Abroad

Worldwide attention has been focused on the long term effects of obesity, as well as the cost of treating obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease, just to name a few.


Bariatric or obesity surgeries in the U.S. can cost between $17,000 and $30,000. Unfortunately, in the U.S., many if not most weight loss or bariatric surgical procedures or obesity treatments are not covered by normal medical insurance.


Nevertheless, those traveling to global destinations may enjoy savings of tens of thousands of dollars in such locations as Mexico, South America and India. Accredited, state-of-the-art equipment and technology are making global obesity surgeries popular, common, and affordable in the 21st century.
