Sometimes more, depending on individualized case scenarios, location of hospital and costs of anesthesia, lab work, consultations, emotional and nutritional support, and so on. However, in India, the cost of laparoscopic bypass averages about $16,500. In Mexico and South American destinations, costs may average between $9,800 and $13,000.
