Attention Bariatric Preoperative Patients…

It is essential that you are aware that ANY WEIGHT GAIN since your attended information session may result in the postponement of your surgery.

Gaining weight during this process greatly decreases the chances that your surgery can be performed as a laparoscopic procedure. It also significantly increases your risks for developing intra-operative and postoperative complications, including but not limited to blood clots and cardiac and respiratory issues, even death.

Our bariatric program focuses on your preoperative and postoperative good health as our first priority.

Anticipated Out-Of-Pocket Expenses

Deductibles, Co-Payments and Non-Covered Services

You will be responsible for any deductibles, co-payments or other non-covered services as required by your insurance provider. This could include a pre-surgery payment required for patients undergoing a weight-loss surgical procedure. For assistance in estimating the costs that will be due prior to your date of surgery, please contact our office at (843)958-2590.

In addition, we encourage you to contact your insurance company or you employee benefits representative to inquire about any “exclusions to weight-loss surgery” that may exist in your policy, as well as any criteria that must be met prior to surgery.


I acknowledge that there are certain out-of-pocket costs for which I will be responsible for before my request for surgery will be processed.
