Many patients elect to pay for their Gastric Sleeve surgery themselves when their health insurance does not cover weight loss surgery. A growing number of employers are directly contracting with providers rather than paying the often inflated prices charged through PPO plans. These employers are looking for fair, bundled prices for elective surgery and Dr. Weiner is happy to offer his self pay price to these employers (It is around 50% of what these employers pay for the same procedure when using their PPO network).
Our price includes all costs of the surgery (anesthesia, pre-operative evaluation, 90 days of postoperative care, in hospital laboratory work and all operating room costs) Additional office visits more than 90 days after surgery are billed at $65 each.

Here’s the process for moving forward with the self/direct pay gastric sleeve surgery:
- All patients meet with Dr. Weiner first to determine if they are a good candidate for the gastric sleeve surgery and learn more about the details of the surgery, recovery and expected results. The fee for this consultation is $250 which is not refundable, but is applicable to the cost of your surgery if you proceed.
- If you meet the criteria to proceed, your payment options are reviewed. Many patients choose to finance their surgery. When you contact our office, we will provide you with more information about financing.
- Once your payment has been received, you will be scheduled for surgery. All payments for surgery are refundable if you choose not to proceed.
