Gastric Sleeve Surgery Abroad: Why Choose Weight Loss Surgery At Kardiolita
However, even though this surgery for weight loss is very attractive, not everyone is able to afford it - in some European countries, price starts at 6000 Eur and can go up to 10000 Eur. This is why so many people choose to have bariatric surgeries, especially the gastric sleeve surgery abroad.
According to Andrius Jonutis, the General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita private hospital in Lithuania - "Additionally to paying significantly less for the surgery in our hospital compared to other hospitals in Europe, being able to stay in very comfortable double wards, get daily meals and full medical care, some patients also decide to spend a few days in our country before leaving home. Our hospital is JCI certified and we work by the highest industry standards - the quality of the medical care and services at Kardiolita hospital often exceeds our patients’ expectations" - says Andrius Jonutis.
The cost of gastric surgery starts at 4000 Eur at Kardiolita private hospital - and when the final price is set for a patient, there would not be any extras (like it does happen in many other hospitals).
While gastric sleeve surgery recovery time depends on each case, it is recommended to have at least 4 days to spend in the hospital, and have another few days for recovery if the surgery was performed as a laparoscopic procedure (longer if open surgery).
Because gastric sleeve surgery is an invasive procedure, it is highly recommended to consult a dietician first, and only then consider having a surgery if it is necessary.
