Live Better, Live Longer
In the past, obesity has been seen as a weakness or an individual’s failure. Diet and exercise were the only prescribed treatments, and weight loss surgery was viewed as dangerous and extreme. Now, obesity is recognized as a disease and the cause of many serious health conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, and sleep disorders.
That’s why Bingham Memorial Hospital is offering an amazing opportunity to experience the life-changing effects of the LAP-BAND surgery at a special price. For just $7,850* you can receive the proven LAP-BAND surgery along with one year of adjustments and follow up. This price represents one of the lowest cash pay LAP-BAND prices in the country. Bingham Memorial Hospital also offers Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for $13,200*, which includes six months of follow-up care to ensure positive results.
*Prices do not include anesthesia.
Many people who shop for the lowest price and choose to go out of the country may not understand the importance of follow up, post-surgical care and support from a qualified team of bariatric surgical professionals. Bingham includes this vital care at no additional charge for both LAP-BAND (one year) and Sleeve Gastrectomy (six months) patients after surgery.
Weight loss surgery is now accepted as a proven method to treat obesity, and most insurance carriers have benefits for weight loss surgery options.
Seriously overweight patients who have never been able to keep pounds off with diet pills, special meals, or other weight loss programs now have a safe, effective, and minimally invasive surgical option that significantly reduces food intake and creates feelings of fullness. This surgery is called gastric banding.
The gastric band creates an earlier feeling of fullness and limits food consumption. It is the only minimally invasive surgical option that is adjustable. It is placed laparoscopically in the body without cutting or stapling the stomach, and no gastrointestinal rerouting or bypassing is involved.
With this surgery, a silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. A small pouch is created, allowing the stomach to hold less food and making the recipient feel full very fast. The goal of the gastric band is to improve health and quality of life while increasing lifespan.
Gastric sleeve surgery is generally reserved for people who are tremendously obese and/or too sick to undergo other weight loss surgeries like gastric banding or gastric bypass surgeries.This kind of surgery is used to help people begin losing weight when other surgeries may offer high risk to their health.
During the sleeve procedure, a stapling device is used to create a smaller stomach pouch, while 85 percent of the stomach is removed. This limits the amount of food that can be eaten and leaves the patient feeling full sooner and stay full longer. Eating less food will allow the patient’s body to begin using its fat supply for energy and discontinue the storage of extra calories.
The gastric sleeve surgery enables the patient to get to a healthy, safe weight so that they can undergo another kind of invasive weight loss surgery. The gastric sleeve allows the patient to lose weight quicker and without any tremendous risk they might experience with other surgeries.
