Why is it dangerous to have gastric bypass weight loss surgery in another country?

Inadequate Health Care Standards

The standard of care and health care regulations are not the same in other countries as in the United States.

Health Risks Associated with Post-Op Travel

Returning home from a foreign country after the gastric bypass procedure requires a plane ride home.  Sitting in a restricted space for extended periods of time is uncomfortable and could cause blood clots.

Inconsistent Post-Op Care

Patients need post-op care.  Traveling back to a foreign country is not practical.  Optimal care is provided when a physician understands a patient’s health history before surgery, performs the procedure and follows up with post-op care.

Added Travel Expenses

Travel expenses make foreign procedure prices less affordable.

Convenient Financing Options Are Available

Heartland Weight Loss Clinic also offers convenient financing options through CareCredit and United Medical Credit.  You can begin the approval process by applying online now.
