Travel Abroad for Affordable Teen Obesity Surgery

Large numbers of teens are overweight or obese. Fast food, convenience, hectic schedules don’t exactly teach kids today how to eat properly. Many of these teens have tried dieting without success. They’ve tried the fad diets, the diet pills, the dietary supplements, without success. Some of these teens who have tried and failed to lose weight, and upon the advice and recommendation of their pediatrician, may consider weight loss procedures or bariatric surgery procedures.

The two most commonly performed weight loss surgical procedures for teens have included the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and adjustable gastric banding procedure. Lap banding utilizes the placement of an elastic band around a portion of the stomach to decrease its size. This procedure is adjustable and removable.

Increasing attention is focused on the long term effects of obesity, as well as the cost of treating obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease, just to name a few. The problem is that bariatric or obesity surgeries in the U.S. can cost between $17,000 and $30,000. Most weight loss or bariatric surgical procedures or obesity treatments are not covered by normal medical insurance.

Traveling to global destinations may enjoy savings of tens of thousands of dollars in such locations as Mexico, South America and India. Accredited, state-of-the-art equipment and technology are making global obesity surgeries popular, common and affordable. Locations such as the Antiobesity Center in Cancun, Mexico, and the 365 mc’s Obesity Clinic in Seoul, South Korea are just a few destinations that offer affordable bariatric surgery, excellent care and long-term health and wellness for teens.
