Tijuana Bariatric Center patients are provided quality care held to the same standards of excellence and safety as in the U.S. The cost of LAP-BAND® surgery coordinated by the Tijuana Bariatric Center is $5,000. Especially for patients who do not have or are not using their medical insurance, these cost savings are substantial, without compromising safety or quality. Patients can expect to undergo care at a center that is equipped with the latest technology, intensive care units with full certification, and in-house laboratory and radiology departments.

For the patient’s convenience, treatment cost includes:

  • Ground transportation to and from the San Diego airport
  • Hotel fees
  • Hospital fees
  • Medical fees
  • Pre- and post-operative tests
  • Nourishment
  • Post-operative medication

The Tijuana Bariatric Center coordinates with a bariatric nutritionist who counsels patients on the proper diet to maximize and maintain their weight loss. She is also available to patients after they return home from their surgery for support regarding diet, as well as counseling in obstacles that arise and how to best make their lifestyle changes permanent.

Protecting Your Investment

Patients traveling for medical procedures often have concerns about how to ensure their safety and financial security. For this reason, the Tijuana Bariatric Center offers medical tourism insurance to its patients. This type of insurance provides coverage for up to $5,000 against unforeseen events in the patient’s surgical procedure during his or her stay in Mexico. Patients are responsible for no deductible and no coinsurance. Medical tourism insurance can give patients the peace of mind they need when undergoing a surgical procedure.

Once the patient has undergone bariatric surgery, there are additional costs to consider. Gym memberships can cost between $20 and $150 per month. Healthier foods including quality proteins tend to cost more than less healthy options. With weight loss comes the need to buy new clothes. While fun to acquire, a new wardrobe can be expensive. Once patients start to feel better from the benefits of their weight loss, they may want to go out and spend time with friends, which often includes activities that cost money.

Reach Out Today

We understand that bariatric surgery is often the first step our patients need to adopt a healthier, more active lifestyle. By providing affordable treatment options, we strive to make bariatric surgery available to anyone who seeks it, regardless of budgetary constraints.
