Offering Weight Loss Surgery at a Fixed Price

It is difficult to determine exactly how much health care services cost in the U.S. In fact, this is one of the biggest problems within our health care industry. And the problem exists, to some extent, with bariatric or weight loss surgery. According to one report, predicting the final cost of the surgery is also a problem in other countries.

The report mentioned the Hospital Sao Luiz in Brazil. Dr Roberto Rizzi and his multi-disciplinary team structured the hospital's bariatric surgery program.

One of the hospital's laparoscopic gastric bypass surgical packages is priced at $11,497. And this price includes the cost of any complications that might occur.

U.S. weight loss or bariatric centers should look at the procedures used in this Brazilian program. According to the above report, at least one American took advantage of the surgery, and was quite satisfied. The Brazilian hospital may well be an important competitor in the bariatric or weight loss industry.
