First Steps to Get Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass or Lap Band - >Pre-Qualification
After you have finished the pre-qualification we will email you the step 2 – 10 to make the process simpler.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve is one of the newer types of bariatric surgery and is very successful. Many surgeons prefer Gastric Sleeve over Gastric Bypass and Lap Band surgery. The Gastric Sleeve shows better outcomes than the lapband and is less invasive than the Gastric Bypass. The Gastric Sleeve surgery is typically covered by most insurances in Arkansas. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover any bariatric procedures and you need to pay for Gastric Sleeve out of pocket; it is important to realise that medical financing is available that makes this an affordable option.
