Gastric Surgery Abroad: Hidden Costs Disappoint Patients

Gastric surgery abroad is a choice of many - whether it's gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, cost savings abroad are truly attractive.


Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2017 -- However, it is not uncommon for patients who choose to go abroad for gastric sleeve or gastric bypass surgery, to get unpleasantly surprised upon arrival at a chosen hospital, after being informed that the price they have been quoted initially, is just part of the total price, and the actual total is much higher.

Some hospitals are intentionally hiding the fact that the price quote they give potential patients prior to coming, is not all inclusive. It is normal for the treatment price to not include flight costs or hotel expenses, but gastric bypass abroad, just as gastric sleeve abroad surgery price should be provided as an all-inclusive meaning full medical care, surgery, after care and all necessary medications are included in the price.

"Our patients from the UK, Scandinavian and other European countries appreciate the fact that we always give an all-inclusive quote: full price includes all doctor consultations prior to and after the surgery, full package of medical tests, the surgery itself, all needed medications, transportation and full medical care in the hospital with daily meals." - says Andrius Jonutis, the General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Even with all inclusive packages, Kardiolita Hospital is able to offer savings as high as up to 70% compared to UK and Scandinavian prices.

At Kardiolita Hospital, gastric surgeries are performed by the general and abdominal surgeon Dr. MD Nerijus Kaselis, who has been performing bariatric surgeries regularly for the past 10+ years. At Kardiolita Hospital, gastric surgery prices start at 4500 Eur, which is significantly lower than in other European countries and therefore is a huge deciding factor for patients from abroad.
