At TreVita, we offer state-of-the-art bariatric weight loss surgery through our network of surgical facilities and U.S Board Certified surgeons. These procedures are designed to help you return to a healthy weight and reduce your risk of developing secondary health issues. The procedure you choose will be a combination of what you want and what your surgeon recommends. As with all surgeries, you will need to be evaluated by our partner surgeons to assess your current medical history. They will determine what type of surgery is best for you. Once approved for surgery, our expert client coordinators will help you prepare for your weight loss journey.
Results of Bariatric Surgery
The procedure can help a patient achieve long-term weight loss in combination with lifestyle changes. patients can loos one-half to two-thirds of their excess weight within two years after their surgery.
Bariatric surgery can also resolve associated conditions, such as:
- Higher blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Sleep apnea
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)
- Joint pain (osteoarthritis)
The Sleeve Gastrectomy, or Gastric Sleeve surgery, is a restrictive procedure performed on the stomach which consists of making the stomach into a long tube, or “sleeve”, by removing two-thirds of the stomach.
In a Gastric Bypass, a small pouch is segmented off from the remaining stomach tissue, creating a new stomach roughly the size of a golf ball. The middle section of the small intestines is then rerouted to the newly created pouch, bypassing the stomach and duodenum.
Mini Gastric Bypass
The Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery (MGB) is very similar to the traditional RNY bypass. The difference is that only one connection is made to the small intestine (instead of 2). The Mini Gastric Bypass creates a narrow tube-like pouch that holds approximately 1-2 ounces.
For a large number of our clients, their initial bariatric surgery produces lasting outcomes. They also receive beneficial lifestyle changes they are seeking. However, for some, weight-loss revision or conversion surgeries may be required to fully meet their goals.

Q:How do I know which procedure I need?
A:Your surgeon will advise on that. When you fill out your application and medical questionnaire, we send it to your chosen surgical facility. The doctor will review the information you provide and discuss your best surgical options with you. Then he or she will approve you for one of the procedures offered that best addresses your medical concerns.
Q:How much weight loss can I expect and how long will it take?
A:Post-operative weight loss can vary greatly between patients and procedures performed, but historically we’ve seen somewhere between 50%-70% total excess weight loss in the first 6 months.
Q:How long will the weight loss surgery take? How long is recovery?
A:Surgery time and recovery is often specific to the patient and the procedure being performed. That said, most procedures take less than a few hours with a total hospital day not exceeding 3 nights. If, however, you’d like additional time to recover and relax, rooms are available in the hospital’s “hotel” wing for an additional cost. Specific instructions for post-operative recovery once you’re back in the U.S. will be provided by your surgeon.
Q:How much does weight loss surgery cost?
A:When shopping for medical tourism services you'll likely find a broad range of prices between different procedures, surgeons, and facilities. This is because not all procedures cost the same amount and not all facilities/surgeons are made equal. The same can be said of services like travel, recovery accommodations, and follow-up care. There are also differences between how providers will display their prices: some are all-inclusive, while others are full of hidden fees.
