Bariatric surgery is an alternative to diet and exercise for helping people lose weight. Most individuals who undergo bariatric surgery safely lose a significant amount of excess weight within a year’s time. Medicare approved bariatric surgery is available today due to high success rate and low risk potential, even for older patients.
As with most types of surgery, you will need approval before Medicare will pay for your procedure.
During your initial consultation, we will examine your medical history and evaluate your current medical state. The information we gather will help determine which bariatric procedure will likely be safest and most successful in helping you lose weight. If you meet all necessary criteria for the procedure, Medicare will likely approve the procedure and pay the majority of the cost.
Dr. Bhoyrul is a Medicare approved physician, and in most cases a referral from your primary care physician will not be necessary.
