bariatric Surgery costs?

As many of you know most insurances will no longer cover the cost of the bariatrics surgery. For me I have tried everything to take weight off nothing has worked I just gain back eveything I lost and then some. I am at a point now its the surgery or suffer some very bad physical problems I have been turned down for a loan for the surgery. Does anyone know of any Gov. grants or organizations that help in this area… im finding the Lapband runs about -8 thousand and the bariatric about ,000 ….Thanks bgaroo

    Gastric Bypass Surgery /gastrectomy/stomach stapling / lap band (all types of bariatric surgery) is very safe nowadays. It is very cheap in India. There is one company that is very famous in India that arranges obesity surgery for foreigners in India. They are called the Forerunners Healthcare. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories.

    I have also read that they arrange financing for American and Canadian patients, as obesity surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. The cost savings are incredible. As a doctor i personally believe that your obesity surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available here is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.

    My cousin got her surgery for gastric bypass in India through the forerunners healthcare .She is more than very happy with the results. She has lost 65lbs in 5 months. She just paid 25% of the amount she was quoted in USA and is all praise for this forerunners healthcare company. Hope this helps.
