Self Pay Options
For a limited time, we have been able to reduced the cost of gastric band (Lap Band) surgery to $12,000*. This cost includes your surgeon’s fees, the facility fee, and anesthesia fees.The costs of your pre-surgical testing including radiology and blood tests are not included but most of the time can be obtained through your primary care physician under your insurance coverage. If you do not have general medical insurance, we can help you obtain these tests at a reduced self pay price through different facilities in Chattanooga. The cost of your surgical consultation will be $250.
*You must meet criteria in order to schedule surgery. You will be evaluated at your consultation appointment with the surgeon in order to determine if there are any factors that would exclude you from this program.
